Application tips

Our schemes are aimed at early to mid career researchers and many of the applications we receive are from researchers writing their first grant. With this in mind, we have put together a series of top tips to help you prepare your grant application and, if applicable, for your grant panel interview:

Remember to allow plenty of time to complete your application and gather the necessary approvals. If your proposed research involves animal experiments, we encourage you to consult the NC3Rs Experimental Design Assistant to help you design your study. Please familiarise yourself with the Academy's policies and concordats which may be relevant to your application.

Please contact us as early as possible if you have any questions about our awards; staff leads for each scheme are identified on the scheme’s webpage.
