The Lipman-Miliband Trust

The Lipman-Miliband Trust continues to play a vital role as one of the very few charities able to respond to the needs of those engaged in socialist education. We encourage new work within this broad field, taking into consideration new areas of cultural and political work in institutions of learning but also in community organisations and among NGOs.

In 1974, socialist businessman Michael Lipman established The Lipman Trust, a progressive charity whose mission was to help support the practice and dissemination of socialist education and research, an area routinely discriminated against by other charities or official sources.

Today, the Trust continues to play a vital role as one of the very few charities able to respond to the needs of those engaged in socialist education. We encourage new work within this broad field, taking into consideration new areas of cultural and political work in institutions of learning but also in community organisations and among NGOs. It is both a sign of hope and a cause for dismay that the call on the Trust’s funds has always outstripped its limited resources.

The Lipman-Miliband Trust meets three times a year to consider applications. The deadlines for applications are 31st January, 31st May, and 30th September. Applicants are usually informed of the outcome of their application within eight weeks following the deadline date.

Please note:
  • The maximum grant that can be awarded from the main fund is £2000. Please bear in mind that this is the upper limit and that we frequently offer grants us significantly less than £2,000.
  • The Trust cannot award grants for work associated with political parties.
  • Please note that the Trust cannot subsidise costs for undergraduate or postgraduate studies.
  • There is no rule limiting the number of applications any one candidate may make, although no more than one grant can be awarded in any 24 months to any applicant.
  • The Trust will not consider the payment of recurring salaries. It will consider the payment of fees specifically related to the project proposal. In respect of such fees the applicant must make clear how the payment is comprised: specifically the expected hours of work on the project and the total payment. The Trust supports good employment practice and requires any payments to comply with minimum wage standards in the country where the project is to be carried out and to be in accordance with any collective agreement negotiated with an independent trade union where such exist.
  • All recipients will be expected to submit a concise report back on completion of their projects. The Secretary can supply you with a feedback form.
  • UK applicants can make bids for overseas projects but these must originate from a UK-based applicant with a UK bank account.
