UKRI publishes information about the funding decisions made by research council boards and panels.
This lets you find out how a grant application did compared with other applications assessed at the same board or panel meeting. It can also inform an organisation’s grant application activity and help improve the quality of applications.
STFC aims to publish outcomes within one month of each board or panel making the final funding decision.
The nature of some of our grants means we cannot show them in board and panel outcomes. For example, we rank our consolidated grants in astronomy, particle physics and nuclear physics by the constituent projects rather than by the grants themselves. For grants like these, we let applicants know how their application did compared to others in written feedback.
Further details about an awarded grant are published on Gateway to Research, which is updated monthly with newly awarded grants.
Outcomes from 2017
Outcomes before 2017
STFC board and panel outcomes before 2017 are not available.
Comparing funding cut-off points
We make funding decisions in circumstances unique to each panel meeting. You should not compare the funding cut-off points made in different meetings.
We cannot consider challenges to, or enquiries about decisions based on these kinds of comparisons.
You must wait for official confirmation before making any commitments against your award.
