Apply for Research Grants

Welcome to the British Heart Foundation Grants Management System.  Here you can apply online for medical research funding into diseases of the heart and circulation.  GMS is accessible only by registered users and is used by:

  • Applicants to apply for research grants by completing an application form online
  • Co-applicants to review and complete their sections of an application
  • Applicants’ colleagues (Heads of Department and Finance Officers) to check and approve applications
  • Scientists selected by BHF to peer review applications

Online grant applications through GMS are currently not available for Infrastructure Grants, Personal Chairs and Strategic Initiatives.  To apply for these grants, please refer to the relevant sections on our website.

Before making an application, it is important to read the specific grant guidelines under What we fund, the section on How to apply and the GMS User Guide. Please note that applications will not be accepted for review if they are incorrectly or inadequately presented.

If you experience any difficulties with GMS please email: e-Queries@bhf.org.uk or telephone 020 7554 0442, between 09:00 and 17:00, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).

By logging into GMS and applying for a research Grant, the BHF will process your personal information for the purpose of administering and reviewing your Application and managing your User Account.
