If you are an MWF member and interested in joining the Grants Committee, please contact our Grants Committee by clicking here. An expression of interest doesn’t guarantee a committee place, as this can depend on established committee size and skill needs. However, we aim to be as inclusive as possible regardless of a member’s experience.
We are committed to acting with integrity in all of our relationships and in selecting grant recipients through an honest and fair process. In support of this commitment, our Conflict of Interest policy and Conflict of Interest Register require disclosure of relationships between our Grants Committee members and any grant applicant or potential grant applicant. We also require Grants Committee members to recuse themselves from discussion and/or collective choosing on any topic where a conflict arises. Please also refer to our Conflict of Interest Grants Committee for more information.
