Economic and Social Research Council - Research Grant

Research-external funding
Rolling deadline
Grants of £350,000 to £1million

The council awards research grants to fund individuals or research teams based at research organisations eligible for UKRI funding.

Grants range from £350,000 to £1 million for a period of up to five years. Funding is based on the full economic costs of the research, with ESRC providing 80% of the cost and the research organisation covering the balance.

Proposals can draw from the wider sciences, but the social sciences must represent more than 50% of the research focus and effort.
