Research Grant

Date Posted: 12/03/2014
Application Deadline: 07/05/2014

A research grant can be awarded for any period of up to five years, but those of two years or less are for proof of principle or pilot work only. Applications seeking support of greater than three years should provide a clear justification as to why a longer timescale is needed, for example due to specific research deliverables, or the need for prolonged data collection or follow-up. The budget for research grant awards will not typically exceed £1 million.

Research grants do not cover programmatic approaches or research involving randomised trials of clinical treatments. If your proposed research will lead directly to a separately funded clinical trial, please contact an MRC research board manager to discuss its eligibility.
