Check if you are eligible for research and innovation funding


Check if you are eligible

There are different eligibility criteria for each of UKRI’s funding opportunities.

Eligibility is normally based on:

  • your suitability to lead or work on a research proposal or business innovation project
  • the research organisation or business where the work is intended to take place
  • the research council you are applying to

Your business or organisation could be eligible for some levels of funding, but not others. For example, it might not be eligible to get a grant directly from UKRI, but could take part in a funded project as a collaborator.

Eligibility criteria is in the ‘who can apply’ section of every funding opportunity.
