    It’s important to check that your application is competitive. Please read the advice in the ‘Eligibility and suitability’ section above before you apply.

    We encourage you to discuss your application with your sponsor and research supervisor. They will give you advice about the intellectual quality and importance of your project. They will also help you to decide whether it’s the right time for you to apply.

    We also encourage you to contact your research office at your host organisation as early as possible in the application process. They should be able to advise you on:

    • how to structure your application, including the budget 
    • what information is needed to support your proposal 
    • how much time your host organisation will need to approve your application after you submit it.
