You should ensure you are aware of and comply with any internal institutional deadlines that may be in place.
Applying using Je-S
You must apply using the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system.
You must have a Je-S account to apply. It can take a number of days to set up. Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) recommends that if you don’t already have an account, you should create one well before the application deadline.
This opportunity is aimed at institutions that do not normally use Je-S so may find it difficult submitting by the deadline. If this applies to you and your institution, then you should:
- Start Je-S registration as soon as possible.
- Email us by 23 September so we can take an equitable approach.
Please also note that if you do not email us by the deadline, we will not be able to take your application forward.
Create a Je-S account.
During account set-up, you must select an account type of ‘an applicant on a standard/outline proposal’.
We recommend you start your application early. You can save completed details in Je-S at any time and return to continue your application later.
When applying, select ‘new document’ then:
- council: AHRC
- document type: standard proposal
- scheme: large grants
- for strand one, add ‘AHRC Creative Research Capability Strand 1 27 September 2022’
- for strand two, add ‘AHRC Creative Research Capability Strand 2 27 September 2022’
- for strand three, add ‘AHRC Creative Research Capability Strand 3 27 September 2022’.
Once you have completed your application, make sure you ‘submit document’.
You can find advice on completing your application in the Je-S handbook.
Your host organisation will also be able to provide advice and guidance on completing your application.
AHRC must receive your application by 27 September 2022 at 16:00.
You will not be able to apply after this time. Please leave enough time for your proposal to pass through your organisation’s Je-S submission route before this date.
What to include with your application
To apply, you must upload the following information to Je-S:
- a completed application form stating which strand you are applying to
