So you have a great project in mind but you're not sure how you are going to fund it?
If you are running a project as an individual, with your club or planning a diving expedition, you may find that applying for funding, and getting financial support from a grant, can really help to raise the standard of an underwater project.
We encourage anyone looking to run a project or expedition to apply for funding, from snorkellers and divers, through to experienced organisers and scientists, everyone is welcome to apply.
Where can I get funding from?
The British Sub-Aqua Jubilee Trust
The British Sub-Aqua Jubilee Trust is the official charity of BSAC. The Jubilee Trust provides financial support to divers for a wide variety of scuba projects. BSAC clubs and members can apply for funding through the Jubilee Trust grant scheme.
