Research grant - MRC


Financial support

You may request support for a period of up to five years, which can include:

  • the salary of the project lead and co-leads
  • support for additional posts – research, technical or other consumables
  • equipment
  • travel costs
  • data preservation, data sharing and dissemination costs.

MRC will usually fund 80% of the full economic cost of your research to your institution. Your proposal must show 100% of the full economic cost throughout.

Please note that the MRC does not provide funding for use as a bridge between grants under any of its funding opportunities.

Costs for PhD studentships cannot be requested within MRC research or programme grants.
