We award research grants to fund individuals or research teams based at research organisations eligible for UKRI funding. You can apply for funding if you are an established member of an approved research organisation, or you have an agreement with a recognised research organisation to work there and have access to appropriate research facilities for the duration of the grant. Funding is available for individuals based at approved universities and independent research organisations in the UK. Co-investigators from business, third sector or government can be included in research proposals.
