Childhood Eye Cancer Trust Research Grants: Application process
All applications to CHECT for research funding will be subject to the below process:
1. Internal triage
The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) reviews the eligibility of all research applications to ensure they adhere to the aims of CHECT’s research strategy, and an initial shortlisting takes place, based on the quality of the application. All shortlisted applications that exceed £25,000 or fall outside the expertise of the SAC will be sent for written review.
2. Written peer review
Shortlisted applications are sent to (usually two) independent peer reviewers.
3. Final review
The SAC discuss the written reviews and make recommendations to the CHECT Board of Trustees.
The charity’s Board of Trustees make the final funding decisions.
More detail about this process can be found in our AMRC Principles of Peer Review document.
All applicants making submissions to the CHECT grant round will be advised of the outcome of their application by October. Our current award rate for applications is 33%.
