Research and Innovation Grants


The Nuffield Foundation


14th March 2014




The Nuffield Foundation invites applications for its grants for research and innovation. These support research, practical experiments or development work in the following areas:

Children and Families – helps to ensure that the legal and institutional framework is best adapted to meet the needs of children and families;

Education – supports innovative research and development in specific priority areas;

Law in Society – promotes access to and understanding of the civil justice system;

Open Door – for projects that improve social wellbeing and meet trustees’ wider interests but lie outside other programme areas, including poverty and disadvantage, financial circumstances of older people and evidence for policy.

The Foundation does not fund the ongoing costs of existing work or services, or research that simply advances knowledge.


Up to 4 years


The foundation does not usually fund organisations outside the UK or projects that take place outside the UK. Collaboration with partners in European or Commonwealth countries is permitted.
