Research grants & fellowships handbook
Introduction and overview
Our handbook sets out the regulations governing our research grants and fellowships including application procedures and eligibility requirements. It also outlines the funding and facilities available to grant-holders and details the responsibilities of NERC, Investigators and Research Organisations. The Terms and Conditions of Research Council fEC grants, that have been agreed across all research councils, are outlined in Annex G of the handbook.
The regulations in effect at any time will be those contained within the most recent version of the handbook.
Separate handbooks, also available on this website, cover the regulations for NERC pre-fEC Fellowships and NERC Studentships.
The handbook is available on our research grants & fellowships forms and handbooks page.
