Funding and grants

Successful grant applications are commonly (Peat et al., 2002):

  • Based on novel ideas
  • Demonstrate appropriate methodology
  • Answer an important question
  • Are practical and likely to succeed
  • Represent good value for money
  • Are well thought out, well written and presented with a clear order and high degree of readability

Grants can be very competitive and difficult to obtain, it is important that you discuss possible grant applications with your research mentor. Also discuss your study with your line manager to determine if your proposal may be possible without additional funding.
