CIHT Foundation

About CIHT smallThe Foundation has been created by CIHT to receive charitable donations from collections and other appeals to distribute to activities and projects that we can support as part of our charitable aims. The focus is on educational or innovative proposals that advance the art and science of highways and transportation. The funds raised go into a restricted CIHT account so that they can only be used strictly for this purpose.

Applications for funds are considered on their merits by the Chief Executive and the Senior Vice President.
CIHT have agreed the criteria and guiding principles for applicants to address in submitting bids for funds. The aim is to keep the paperwork and procedures involved simple, fair and transparent to encourage a wide range of ideas for projects and schemes. 
Anyone wishing to apply for a grant should first read the CIHT Foundation - Criteria and Guidance Aug 2016 document.  If you believe your project or activity meets the relevant criteria, please complete either the   Grant Application Form (grants up to £5000)  or the Small Grant Application Form (grants up to £250) and return to
