Funding and fellowships

Where to find funding opportunities

Database of funding


The best place to search for all funding opportunities (fellowships, travel grants, larger research grants) is the ResearchProfessional database. You can search for funding by discipline and find guidance on writing proposals: ResearchProfessional website

Popular fellowship schemes in the UK

Look beyond the most well-known fellowships. Check publications for who else funds research in your area. You may have a better chance of success with small foundations than with national funding bodies.
