Grants Workshops

Would you like to know more about how GCHT’s grants scheme works? If you are thinking of applying for a grant but don’t know where to start, then you are in the right place! 

“I can thoroughly recommend the support from GCHT - they supported us all the way!”

Between September 2020 and March 2021, GCHT ran a series of workshops which offered a step by step guide to applying for our grants. Each event featured a short presentation focused on eligibility and the application process, followed by two guest speakers who spoke about past projects. Speakers included a range of past grantees as well as GCHT Officers. Each workshop ended with a Q&A session and general discussion.

“Many thanks to GCHT and the speakers - Colin's case study was interesting and applicable to a lot of Glasgow legacy buildings.”
“It’s been a super interesting meeting, thank you very much!"

The subtitled recordings of the events are now available to watch online for free:
