Academic case - notes for applicants

Research PROPOSAL – to be attached to the coversheet

There is a strict length limit.

The Trustees are aware that the brevity requested inevitably means that you will not be able to go into the sort of detail expected in other funding applications; this is sometimes commented on by referees, but we will make them aware of the reasons for this.

Trustees appreciate a clear, strongly-structured proposal; use of subheadings can aid clarity, so feel free to use them.

You might find the following suggestions helpful for structuring your content:

  • The intellectual significance of the proposal (introductory context setting)
  • A  clear statement of what you intend to achieve
  • An outline timetable of the stages of the project and why it is feasible in the time available
  • The techniques to be employed
  • The names of personnel to be involved where these are already known, with a summary of appropriate information about them, including comments on their relevant expertise
  • An indication of the form(s) that the final output(s) will take
  • Any commercial aspects of the work, including those pertaining to intellectual property
  • Where appropriate, ethical approvals obtained or to be sought in relation to the project, including details, if necessary, of Home Office Licences.
