Supporting our researchers

The pursuit of external research funding is supported by a high-quality administrative service which helped secure over £96.5M for the last five years.

We attract research funding from a broad base of sources to support our long-term research ambitions including the UK Research Councils, British Academy, Leverhulme Trust, British Red Cross, Joseph Rowntree Foundation and the Health Foundation.

The Faculty of Humanities' Research Support Services provide project management support to academics throughout the whole of the project grant lifecycle from award to completion. 

A handbook has been developed to highlight the main steps involved when you apply for, and win, external funding for your research. For further information on the support mechanisms in place to help you at every stage of the funding application process, and how we can help researchers to apply for and manage a research grant, contract or consultancy, please see the Faculty of Humanities' Research Support Services Handbook.
