Please submit your application online via the Internal Research Award Management System (IRAMS).

Guidance on using IRAMS for applicants, departmental approvers, and administrators can be found on the Research Support pages.

Applications to all scheme categories are considered in parallel and applications to one category are not prioritised for funding over another.

Post-doctoral researchers who are eligible to apply for a Goodger and Schorstein Scholarship are recommended to select that category on the application form. Only one G&S Scholarship is usually awarded per round to the top-ranked applicant for the Scholarship. All other applications for G&S Scholarships will be considered alongside the other applications to the MSIF Pump Priming scheme and if selected will be awarded from the other source of funds.

Note that some departments may have set an earlier internal deadline so please check with your local admin team and prepare your application well in advance of the advertised deadline date. Applications must be reviewed online for eligibility and departmental support by departmental approvers and, where approved, submitted to the Committee for review. 

Please complete the application form including a two-page summary of the research proposed under the headings in the case-for-support template provided. Please submit this as a single PDF to include all required elements.

Applications, scores, and reviewer comments may be shared with other internal University panels to ensure maximum value for money.
