The University has set up a fund to provide financial contributions to large, collaborative grant applications. This is to encourage and support these applications and maximise the University’s outward-facing impact.  

The fund will normally be available for applications of £5M+ in STEM disciplines and £2M+ in AHSS disciplines, and may award up to 10% of the total value of the application. All applications must include at least one external partner. 

Funding will be primarily provided for areas that are not otherwise easy to get funds for, such as widening participation, equality, diversity and inclusion, and developing links / working with less advantaged partners. The financial contribution from this fund will be provided as additional and added value, not as a replacement of other financial or in-kind contributions. Departments, Schools and non-School institutions are encouraged to provide financial and in-kind contributions to the same bid.  

Full details on the fund, eligibility and how to apply are available online. The fund is now open and applications are welcome at any time on a rolling basis.
