STFC Funding Calls

STFC provides funding for Research Grants, Fellowships and Studentships. It also gives awards for Science in Society activities as well as contracts to Industry under specified calls.

When preparing an application to STFC, please take account of the closing date for the call to which you are applying. Your completed proposal, together with the case for support and other relevant documents, should be submitted by the specified closing date. If you miss the call deadline then STFC may not accept your proposal. Please ensure that you have selected the correct scheme and call on the Je-S System (link opens in a new window) before beginning your proposal.

Please note that the terminology "Standard" used below relates to the Je-S Proposal Type (e.g. standard/fellowship) and the Je-S Scheme. It does not relate to the old STFC grant type of Standard/Rolling which we are no longer using.

Closing date deadlines

As a result of consultation with Research Organisations (ROs) the Research Councils* have agreed a common deadline submission time of 4.00pm on the advertised closing date. This time covers all calls and closing dates, except for those that are "open", for the Research Councils* and also other funders that use the Je-S System (link opens in a new window).

The time was chosen to give ROs sufficient time to submit proposals but provide an hour of support time past the deadline should problems arise. This change has been made as a direct result of feedback from ROs and aims to provided consistency and clarity. Closing dates will be strictly enforced.

Please note that STFC does not accept submission of hardcopy proposals (except for some Science in Society schemes). All  proposal submissions should be made using the Je-S System (link opens in a new window).

* - AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC and STFC
