Under the research grant scheme you may request support for a period of up to five years, which can include:
- the salary of the principal investigator and co-investigators
- support for additional posts – research, technical or other consumables
- travel costs
- data preservation, data sharing and dissemination costs.
The MRC will usually fund on the basis of 80% of the full economic cost of your research to your institution. Your proposal must show 100% of the full economic cost throughout.
Please note that the MRC does not provide funding for use as a bridge between grants under any of its grant schemes.
Costs for PhD studentships cannot be requested within MRC research or programme grants.
