 The 2021 awards

  • Pre-Doctoral Scheme (formerly Scheme B)  this scheme will be available to novice researchers, supported by one or more experienced supervisors. The funding available for individual projects will be £25,000. However, this should be considered as guidance only and applications requesting more than this amount will be considered individually on merit.
  • Post-Doctoral Scheme (formerly Scheme C)  this scheme will be available to post-doctoral researchers who are yet to secure their first major project grant. Again, the funding available for individual projects will be £25,000. However, this should be considered as guidance only and applications requesting more than this amount will be considered individually on merit.

  • Both schemes will be one-stage application processes.

  • The Scientific Panel is committed to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in research, and welcomes applications that demonstrate a clear commitment to EDI.

Please note:

  • It is expected that the pre-doctoral scheme will open in February and close in April. Application outcomes will be communicated in late June 2021.

  • It is expected that the post-doctoral scheme will open in late June and close in early September. Application outcomes will be communicated in December 2021.
