Funding, Opportunities
Funding news

Apply for funding to support applied research that will address global health challenges and inequities.

We will accept applications of all sizes, including large research projects and small to medium-scale applications.

We are looking to develop a portfolio of high-quality global research which will be diverse, promote multidisciplinarity and strengthen global health research capacity.

We encourage applications from project leads based in:

  • low and middle-income countries (LMICs)
  • UK, working in equitable partnership with LMIC researchers

The start application link will be available to select from 9:00am 15 March 2024.

 

Who is eligible to apply

To be eligible to apply for this funding opportunity you must:

  • be eligible as an individual
  • be based at either an eligible UK research organisation, or based in a:
    • research organisation in a low or middle-income country (LMIC), with degree-awarding powers recognised by the government in which the organisation is based
    • research-focused institute based in an LMIC either funded by the government of the country in which the organisation is based, or by a not-for-profit organisation
    • research-focused not-for-profit organisation based in an LMIC with dedicated research capacity

Medical Research Council (MRC) particularly encourages applications from:

The board recognises that applied global health research requires the involvement of a diverse range of collaborating organisations in order to affect sustainable change.

Applications involving a not-for-profit organisation based in an LMIC will be eligible to be named project co-lead (international). This can include grass-roots organisations and community groups.

If you do not have a contract of employment for the duration of the proposed project, by submitting an application the research organisation is confirming, if it is successful:

  • contracts will be extended beyond the end date of the project
  • all necessary support for the project and the applicants will be provided, including mentorship and career development for early career researchers

Who is not eligible to apply

You are not eligible to apply if:

  • you are based in a high-income country (does not include UK project leads, who are eligible), or in India, you are not eligible to be project lead, but may be eligible to be project co-lead (international)
  • you are based in China

It is expected that researchers from India and any high-income countries make a significant contribution to their own research costs, including covering their own overheads. Where India is included in a project there must be at least two other LMICs involved in the project.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

We are committed to achieving equality of opportunity for all funding applicants. We encourage applications from a diverse range of researchers.

We support people to work in a way that suits their personal circumstances. This includes:

  • career breaks
  • support for people with caring responsibilities
  • flexible working
  • alternative working patterns
