Successful research grant applications – getting it right


About this module

We understand that identifying the right research project is only step one. Many early and mid-career researchers must still locate and compete for funding before work can begin. Grant applications can be complex, eating into valuable work time, and you are often one of many researchers applying for limited funds. So how do you ensure your application stands out and increase your chances of being accepted first time?

In this interactive module, we highlight points to keep in mind when preparing your application. We explain how to evaluate your idea and what to consider when identifying grant opportunities. We help you understand what funding bodies look for and share useful tips on preparing your application.

You’ll come away with a clearer understanding of the funding process and what it takes to increase your chances of grant success.
