Internal funding support available for research and academic staff

By Nov.08, 2013

The Research & Innovation Division administers a number of internal strategic funds to support research activity across the university.

The various schemes offer support for a range of research-related activities, including scholarships aimed specifically at Early Career researchers. Funds are available for activities ranging from support for bidding/proposal development and paper presentations at key conferences in your disciplinary areas, to Open Access publishing and commercialisation of research.

Whilst most schemes are open year-round, a few have set submission deadlines.

The full list of schemes for 2013/14 is as follows:

  • The Vice-Chancellor’s Early Career Research Scholarship Scheme – this year’s deadline for submissions was October 2013
  • The Vice-Chancellor’s Research Excellence Fund
  • Research Bidding Support Fund
  • International Conference Fund
  • Bridging Fund
  • Open Access Support Scheme
  • Commercialisation of Research Fund

Full details of all the schemes (and the application process for each), are available on the R&I intranet:
