1.6 What can be applied for by whom

1.6.1 Studentships

The MRC supports students by providing block grants direct to research organisations (ROs) who then recruit and manage the students. We do not award grants directly to individual students. Studentships can also be included on centre grants but must not be included on research grants. Refer to information on studentships for further details.

1.6.2 New Investigators

New investigators can apply for a fellowship, a New Investigator Research Grant (NIRG) or research grant.

1.6.3 Experienced investigators

Please browse funding opportunities for details of other types of grants which are available.
