Specific information for Researchers and Students

Please note that the RCUK Strategy Unit does not provide research funding or studentship opportunities but works with people across the Research Councils to encourage cross-Council collaboration.

Studentship funding is either awarded directly to universities and research organisations; or the application process for studentship funding has to be completed with the relevant institution. Therefore potential students should contact the institution at which they wish to undertake a research degree.

The Research Councils provide funding to UK universities, Research Council Institutes and a number of other independent research organisations in the form of research grants and fellowships. Each of the Research Councils publishes information on its website about funding opportunities and how to apply for funding. This information can be accessed by following the "How to apply for funding" link in the respective Research Council's contact details below.

Companies seeking information or wishing to tender for provision of services to the Research Councils should contact the Research Councils Procurement Organisation (RCPO) on 01793 867000, or through the RCPO website.

Questions/feedback regarding the RCUK website should be sent to the Web manager
