N.B. University/institutional applicants should advise their Research Office of their intention to apply at least 10 business days before the above deadlines. Remember that institutions will have their own internal guidelines which must be followed.
Funding decisions are made by the Trust Board at its next meeting – usually four to eight weeks after each funding round closes. All applicants are then notified by email. The MPPT office will also send copies of notification letters by post if these are specifically requested by applicants.

A copy of any published proceedings of the conference will also be appreciated by the trustees.
The report should be uploaded to your MPPT user account. Once you’ve logged in the report form can be accessed through a menu item on your dashboard.
