Banks, trusts, philanthropic foundations and moneyed individuals are known to make available financial grants to fund deserving and worthy causes and projects carried out by individuals or organizations in the research or academe, as well as museums. To this end, Grant Administrators are employed to oversee that grants are well-spent in accordance with the goals for which they have been granted. They receive and process grant applications in the range of 5-10 million pounds, have them approved and monitor their productive use as intended.
