Download the Form

Stage Two

Register your project using the submission form.

Upload your completed application form (please convert to pdf, if possible).

Submit Online

Please Note: Applications must be made using an online system. Unfortunately, we will not accept emailed applications.

The Application Process

The application process is made up of two stages.

STAGE 1: The application form (Word document)

Start by downloading and completing this application form

This part of the application contains the compulsory "free text" type questions that all applicants are required to answer. These are the type of questions that you need to think about, share with your collaborators and are often easier to complete 'off-line'.

STAGE 2. The online submission form

When you have completed Part 1, convert it into a PDF document and upload it via our online submission form (Part 2).  Complete your application by acknowledging the eligibility criteria, exclusions to the scheme and the financial requirements and restrictions in the online form.

  • TIP: Before you begin completing Stage 2 make sure that you have the name and email address of your departmental finance administrator
