Royal Society Research Grants

The scheme provides ‘seed corn’ funding for new projects of timeliness and promise.

This scheme provides ‘seed corn’ funding for up to 18 months for independent researchers. The Society has now increased the maximum amount available to £70,000 to enable researchers to build their research programme and purchase essential piece of equipment. 

Your research must be within the Royal Society’s remit of natural sciences, which includes but is not limited to biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics.
