1.7 How to submit your application - MRC


1.7.3 Who can submit

Please note that when an application is submitted through Je-S it does not pass directly to the MRC, but to the research councils grants team who will then process the submission for the MRC.

The submission process, and therefore which research organisations (ROs) are eligible to submit funding proposals,  can vary depending on the specific eligibility requirements of an individual MRC funding opportunity (call). Where call specific guidance has not been provided by MRC applicants should follow the below guidance within this section.

All applications need to be submitted through the lead RO, which in turn must be Je-S registered. Further information and guidance is available on the Je-S help pages (accessible from the top right of the Je-S homepage).

Technical information on accessing and navigating Je-S is available through the Je-S help pages (please use the ‘show’ link in the top left corner of the screen).

All applicants should consult the team responsible (for example Research Office), for proposal submissions at their RO to confirm how much time they will need to process the application and complete the submission process.

All applications must be submitted to MRC via Je-S by 16:00 UK time on the advertised closing date.

Applications received after the advertised deadline will not be considered.
