Je-S electronic applications

All research proposals to ESRC must be made electronically through the Joint electronic Submission system (Je-S). 

Accessing electronic applications

If you and your research organisation are already registered for Je-S, you can access electronic applications via the Je-S website

Organisations wishing to register for Je-S should contact the Je-S Helpdesk using the contact details below.

Users wishing to access the Je-S system for the first time are asked to check with their central administration on the status of the organisation's Je-S registration before pursuing the option of creating an account through the Je-S system.

Please also check the RCUK funding eligibility information.

Applicants are strongly advised to consult both the Je-S helptext (accessed via the 'help' link on the Je-S screens) and the ESRC scheme specific guidance notes on this website. Particular attention should be paid to the sections on Case for Support and Attachments, as applications that do not comply with ESRC specific requirements cannot be accepted.

Note that registration details for the Je-S website and for the ESRC website are not interchangeable; the two websites are separate from one another.
