The 2021 awards
- Pre-Doctoral Scheme (formerly Scheme B) – this scheme is 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, his should be considered as guidance only and applications requesting more than this amount will be considered individually on merit.
- Both schemes have 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.
The pre-doctoral scheme application deadline is midday 12 April 2021. 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.
