Levels of award
Level 1 - Awards between £500 and £5000
If you have an idea but need to test it to help get it off the ground then a level 1 award could help with some of the start up costs. Our turnaround time is eight weeks from when a complete application is submitted.
Level 2 - Awards up to £20,000
If you have already developed and tested your idea but need more time to implement it then a level 2 award could pay for your living expenses.
