Working as a Researcher

Grants, awards and prizes

This page carries information of a range of smaller grants, awards and prizes intended mainly for early career researchers and others, particularly in STEMM areas. These can be offered in recognition of either academic merit or financial hardship. They are generally made as a one-off payment.

For funding information, also see the RIS Funding webpage and SharePoint site.

Awards intended mainly or wholly for early career researchers:

Wider awards

Public engagement

Many funding organisations also have money available to support outreach events, allowing researchers to demonstrate the relevance of their work to a wider audience. 

Any other business

When bids for conventional funding has led nowhere, Petridish aims to find public sponsorship, and hence crowd-fund science-based research projects.
