Research Grants

Grants of up to £2,500 are available for applications which enhance the research reputation and visibility of the Faculty, create impact from research and/or generate additional research income. Early career staff will be given priority.

The Faculty has an annual fund to support cross-faculty research and research-related activities, including impact generation.

You may only apply for one grant per academic year and preference will be given to early career staff and those who did not receive money in the previous year. Applications must be reviewed and signed off by your Research Director.

The grants cannot be used to fund staff time (academic or researchers) but can support small amounts of student time. Conference travel is not eligible as this is covered by the faculty travel grant scheme.

Grants should be completed by the end of the financial year, 31st July 2019. If you are on a fixed term contract the end date of the grant cannot extend beyond your contract end date. 

Applications must be submitted via email by 5pm on Friday 5th October 2018. No late applications will be considered.

Grant recipients must submit a written report of approximately 500 words within four weeks of ending the activity. Failure to do so without good reason will result in the withdrawal of funds.
