UCL Grand Challenge of Global Health (GCGH): Small Grants

The call for Grand Challenges small grants for 2016-17 is now open.

Apply online before the 1st of June.


The UCL Grand Challenges encourage the brightest minds to think and work together in tackling the world's complex societal problems. One of the main ways we do this is through the Grand Challenge Small Grants scheme: awarding amounts of up to £4000 to UCL researchers engaged in novel cross-disciplinary initiatives, such as:

  • pilot research
  • academic and policy-focused workshops and conferences
  • public engagement activities which may involve lectures, films, plays, community outreach or 'citizen science'

How to apply

Any UCL researcher of postdoctoral standing or above can apply for a Grand Challenge of Global Health small grant jointly with a researcher based in a different UCL faculty. External collaborators (academic or non-academic) can also be included in submitted applications. We will be announcing the process for applying for 2016-17 grants in February 2016.
