Grant Application Support

Grant Application Support

Support with grant applications is provided by the College of Arts & Humanities Research Office in conjunction with Arts Lab.

1)  Arts Lab Workshops focus on particular schemes or types of award, with tips for success and a chance for discussion. These are open to all staff and to others where appropriate. Recordings of selected workshops are available on the College of Arts & Humanities Research Resources Moodle.

2)  The Application Development Service provides full support with the process of choosing a funder and making an application. Please read the guidance at the link above, before starting to think about grant applications. Here is a quick one-page guide to the process: Application Steps.  Sample applications, and advice, are on the College of Arts & Humanities Research Resources Moodle.

3)  If you need to write a PI Response to peer reviews (this will usually be for research council applications) then the Arts Lab Directors and the Research Office team can help you. Please look at the guidance and examples on the Moodle, and then send us your draft for review.

4)  If you require financial support (e.g. research assistance, travel costs, or small amounts of teaching/marking buyout) in order to prepare a grant application, please contact your School Research Convenor. In addition to drawing on School research funds, the Convenor may make requests to the Arts Lab directors if the  support required is for building of cross-School or cross-College teams which can lead to collaborative grant applications.

Do also sign up for ResearchProfessional email alerts, which give a weekly digest of all funding opportunities in your chosen discipline. You can also search the database on the Research Professional site. Here are their help articles.
