We award research grants to fund individuals or research teams based at research organisations eligible for UKRI funding.
Grants range from £350,000 to £1 million for a period of up to five years. Funding is based on the full economic costs of the research, with ESRC providing 80% of the cost and the research organisation covering the balance.
Proposals can draw from the wider sciences, but the social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.
Please note that the eligible attachments for proposals to this funding opportunity have changed. For more information, please see the changes to eligible attachments notification under the additional info section.
