Grants held by Frontier

A large proportion of Frontier's research programmes are financed by external funding from international grant bodies. The grant appeals process is fiercely competitive, with a huge number of charities and NGOs applying for very few grants, and it is a testament to the high quality of our work that we have won and continue to win more grants than any of our peers.
