Apply now for two mental health small grant schemes
28 November 2023
The UCL Institute of Mental Health (IoMH) is delighted to announce two funding opportunities for affiliated researchers at UCL.
The IoMH’s mission is to unite researchers, from a range of relevant disciplines, behind the goal of improving the understanding of mental health and its disorders.
As part of its commitment to support mental health research, the IoMH has established a small grant scheme to encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary work in mental health research. This is the fifth year that the scheme has run.
The IoMH has also established public engagement grants scheme and for the second year we will be making awards to encourage better engagement of the public with mental health research.
Small Grant Funding
We will be awarding up to £10,000 to encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary work in mental health research. Researchers are welcome to bid up to £10,000 to fund a project that will last up to 12 months.
We anticipate making one award only, and this is likely to be the only round this year.
Public Engagement Grants
We will also be making individual awards of up to £2,000 to encourage better engagement of the public with mental health research. Work funded under this scheme may include workshops, focus groups, art exhibitions or other public-facing activities. Target audiences must include researchers and members of the public.
Both awards are open to individuals or teams including Institute of Mental Health affiliated researchers, but applications must also include a substantive member of staff at UCL. You can find out more about how to become an affiliated researcher on our website.
Applications close for both calls on 17 January 2024 at 1pm. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
