International Development Research @ Cambridge

 

​The Research Grants Schemes by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) are intended to support well-defined research projects enabling individual researchers to collaborate with, and bring benefits to, other individuals and organisations through the conduct of research.

Eligibility

This scheme is not intended to support individual scholarship. The aim of this route is the same as the standard, however, principal investigators must meet the additional eligibility criteria as outlined in our Research Funding Guide.

Please note that as a minimum all applications under the grants scheme will be required to include a principal investigator and at least one co-investigator jointly involved in the development of the research proposal, its leadership and management and leading to significant jointly authored research outputs.

Level of funding

The early career route provides grants for projects with a full economic cost (fEC) between £50,000 and £250,000 for a varying duration up to a limit of 60 months.

Assessment

Please note that the assessment process for a Research Grants scheme application (Standard, Speculative and Early Career routes) takes approximately 30 weeks and the earliest start date for a project should be no earlier than 9 months after submission to the AHRC.

 

For further information about call scope and application procedure please see the AHRC website.
