- Project Grants – initial partner funding for new research projects; plus grants for unconventional, innovative forms of research & scholarship
- Emergency Grants – bridging for salary costs / brief underwriting / start-up grants
- Equipment Grants – use of shared equipment, or small equipment needs as part of a specific project. NB the Trust will no longer offer contributions to the cost of major items of equipment.
Please note that there will be a single round for Research Grant applications per annum, in the Michaelmas Term. Applications for emergency cover will continue to be considered at any of the Trustees’ meetings. See: Research Grants.
In exceptional circumstances, the Trustees may consider an application for support for a large, institutional, perhaps interdisciplinary, programme of strategic value to the University for the promotion of education or research. This would normally be in response to the possibility of securing a major grant from an external funding body.
