Research and Project Funding

There are many sources of funding for educational and the social science research and some of the high profile research councils and boards are listed in the links on this page. Most of the web sites contain background to the funding body together with information for applicants on what will and what will not be funded. For instance, few of the charitable trusts will pay established staff costs or overheads, but may consider bids for research assistant's salary costs.

The field of research funding is highly competitive and the competition for major research council awards is particularly strong. Applicants are advised to seek the advice of the person responsible for research within their own institution and be mindful of the total project management costs e.g. expenses, supply cover, postage (hidden costs).
