The British Korean Society has at times funds available for small grants to organisations or individuals for activities or projects in sympathy with our members’ and sponsors’ aims of fostering friendship between the UK and Korea.
Currently we have £4,000 – £5,000 available each year which we aim to award to a diverse range of worthwhile activities.
The closing date for applications for the next round of BKS grants is 1st April 2017.
The Society is willing to encourage:
- Those who make positive contributions to British and Korean societies.
- Applications for specific identifiable purposes where our funding will make a genuine difference rather than being swallowed up in general running costs.
- Applications which will lead to lasting contacts, friendships, activities involving both countries, and those involving young people.
The scope of the applications is unrestricted - grants in aid of exhibitions or performances, publications, travel, sport, charitable activities, commemorations and other similarly constructive activities will all be considered. We are happy to consider applications from previous BKS grant recipients (individuals as well as organisations) which will be judged against the criteria outlined above. However, especially for individual applications, we may also consider the financial impact on our wish to encourage a mix of activities.
