Grant Team

Humanities and social science research is dependent more than ever on external funding. Today, nearly all funding schemes require applicants to submit detailed plans on budgets, staffing, digital infrastructure, preservation, intellectual property, communication, impact, and project management. The HuC has created an inter-departmental Grant Team consisting of staff with the necessary skills and experience to provide its researchers with expertise in all of these fields. Their work is complemented by an online resource on the HuC intranet with detailed information on everything required to apply for a grant.

Researchers who work with the Grant Team can expect tailored, hands-on support during the entire application process as well as post-submission assistance in preparing written rebuttals and personal coaching to prepare for interviews by selection panels. Over and beyond this, we strongly believe that a rejected proposal does not necessarily represent the end of the road. Informed by relevant feedback, an unsuccessful proposal can provide a significant head start for a subsequent re-submission or form the basis for a new proposal submitted to a different funding scheme.
