Detailed Applications for Research Project Grants

Detailed Applications and any information relating to them are only accessible to applicants once they have received an invitation to progress from the Outline stage.

The Detailed Application should be an elaboration of the Outline Application. Significant changes in the stated intention, aims or objectives of the research are not permitted. The total budget and personnel requested in the Detailed Application should be the same as that provided in the outline; the only budget changes that are allowable relate to adjustments in salary costs, which should conform to current pay scales.

Feedback on applications

Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications for this scheme, it is not possible to provide feedback to individual applicants regarding unsuccessful applications.
