Call for Applications to the Researcher-Led Initiative Fund: Apply by Friday 2nd May 2014

Posted on


Researcher-Led Initiative Fund

The Researcher-Led Initiative (RLI) fund has been established to fund peer-led professional development activities for researchers. We are keen to sponsor initiatives that benefit a broad range of researchers (across disciplines and career stages). You may seek funding for activities that expand, complement or build on current provision for researchers

The current call is for activities that are already in progress that you are seeking some support for and the funds must be spent by the 31st July 2014.

We are looking to support activities which:

–          Enhance the professional development of researchers

–          Can be opened up to researchers in more than one School

–          Address areas within the Vitae Researcher Development Framework

Applications to the RLI fund are invited from researchers of all career stages: doctoral researchers, research staff, and members of faculty. However, funding will not be given for travel, course or conference attendance, or staffing costs. Similarly, research projects are outside the scope of this funding stream.

We would normally expect applications to be for less than £1,000, although applications that exceed this amount will be considered.

The Doctoral School will call for applications to the RLI fund again in the Autumn Term.

Please refer to the guidance notes and application forms at:

Get in touch with us at with any queries.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 2nd May 2014.
