Grants and fellowships
Grants and fellowships can be sourced from Research Councils, a wide variety of charities and societies, and universities. You should at least familiarise yourself with the major research funders in your field, such as those listed below. Competition for funding is fierce, so it pays to diversify your grant-seeking behaviour and be vigilant for new opportunities.
Research Professional is an online search tool which provides research news and funding information from many sources, in all disciplines, and is updated daily; it is well worth registering to receive email alerts about funding opportunities in your chosen topic as they arise.
