Important notice for applicants

20 December 2010

We are making some changes to our current funding schemes. These are detailed in our Delivery Plan for 2011-2015.

The key changes include:

  • Termination of existing small grants, postdoctoral fellowships and mid-career development fellowships schemes. We will still process all applications we receive before the schemes' final closing date at 16.00 on 1 February 2011.

  • An increased lower threshold for standard grants of £200,000, and an increased upper threshold of £2million, from spring 2011. We will accept applications for standard grants up to £200,000 until 16.00 on 1 February 2011.

  • The introduction of a new Future Leaders scheme for early career researchers in spring 2011.
