The RSE’s Research Awards Spring 2022 Programme opens today, providing funding opportunities for all academic disciplines, across all career stages.

Launched today are five different research funding opportunities designed to support Scotland’s academics to realise their potential, stimulate research in Scotland, and promote international collaboration.

Now running twice a year in Spring and Autumn, the deadline for this next open call is Thursday 24 March 2022.

Supporting Scotland’s vibrant research sector will have a lasting benefit to the individuals and communities concerned and to broader society.
