The Sector Mentoring Challenge Fund (SMCF) is a competitive, one-off round of funding. It will support additional sector-specific mentoring activity over and above current provision.

By offering match-funding of up to £150,000 per project, we want to encourage innovative proposals that will help demonstrate the benefits of sector mentoring, including self-funding models.

The competition is open to any UK organisation that can provide tailored mentoring that meets real needs in a business sector.

The prospectus provides full guidance for applicants. It also explains why we launched the Fund how we will assess applications.

The application form has 9 separate pages. You should complete all of the questions as fully as possible within the word limit for each section.

Send your completed application to by midday on 11 December 2013.
