Exercise Grant 2018 – Round 1 Closed

Exercise Grant 2018 - Round One Closed

Cystic Fibrosis Ireland would like to advise members that Round 1 of the Exercise Grant has now closed due to the budget being exhausted.

Round 1 of the Exercise Grant opened on Monday January 15th and was due to close on Monday February 19th.  There was a fantastic response to the Grant Scheme, with over 150 applications were received in under 3 weeks.

The Exercise grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis providing all the grant criteria are met. The number of grants available each year is subject to the available budget within CFI, which is reviewed on an annual basis. A total of €80,000 is allocated to the exercise grant in 2018, €40,000 for each Round, which is an increase of €20,000 from 2017. Once this budget is exhausted, we cannot issue further grants until the next Round goes live (a new application form must be supplied for each Round).  

The next round of the Exercise Grant Scheme will open in September 2018.

Cheques will be sent to all successful applicants within two weeks.

Members of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland can apply once a year for an Exercise Grant.
