Grants advice

In collaboration with partners across UCL the Grants Advice team provides comprehensive advice to all staff and students based within ICH and GOSH.  

We provide a pre-award support to all grant applications, from large programme grants to smaller project grants and fellowship awards. We can: 

  • Advise on suitable grant funders and funding streams
  • Assist with the preparation of applications 
  • Suggest the involvement of other support services and external agencies
    • Research Design Service (RDS) London
    • NIHR Clinical Research Network (North Thames)
    • Clinical Trials Unit
  • Provide feedback on your draft application, peer review comments and response to reviewers 
  • Arrange mock interviews.

We can also give advice regarding the long-term sustainability of your research and ways in which your programme of research can develop.

To access support please email: and we aim to respond to your request within three working days. We recommend that you contact the Grants Advice team as early as possible to ensure we can provide you with adequate support.

R&I Bulletin

We send out a fortnightly bulletin which contains latest relevant funding opportunities, events and announcements. Every month we also update a master list of funding opportunities. To receive it directly to your inbox email us to be added to our mailing list.

You can also find all previous bulletins and funding lists in our archive.

If you have a UCL contract (substantive or honorary) you can access GRANTfinder - a comprehensive database of funding opportunities. Please contact Jacob Sweiry with your first name, last name and UCL email address to have an account set up.
