The Royal Society Research Grant is now open for applications. This popular scheme is aimed at early career researchers (or those returning from a career break). Projects must fall in the Royal Society’s remit of natural sciences, which includes but is not limited to biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics – see here for a full list.
This provides ‘seed corn’ funding for a discrete piece of research with the budget to be used to purchase specialised equipment and consumables, and travel for essential fieldwork.
Award Value: £20,000
Duration: 12 months
Deadline: Thursday 16th May, 3pm
