Research Funding Information
Information for researchers in the department on applying for research funding......
If you are interested in applying for research funding please contact Philip McDonald (email@example.com) in the first instance.
All grant applications need to be approved by the Research Services Office (RSO) once the budget has been agreed by the department. The RSO require 5 days for processing applications prior to approval and submission, so early warning of deadlines is essential.
