Wed 20 Jan 2021

Closing date: 15 March 2021


The Nuffield Foundation's Research, Development and Analysis grants portfolio is central to the delivery of their mission to advance educational opportunity and social well-being across the UK. It is expected that funded projects will work to improve the design and operation of social policy, especially in those areas which the Foundation have always identified as underpinning a well-functioning society: Education, Welfare and Justice.

Grants will normally range in size from £10,000 up to £500,000, with most lying between £50,000 and £300,000.

Occasionally the Foundation will make grants larger than £500,000 but these often require a bespoke timescale for consideration and decision, which will be discussed with applicants. Many of the large-scale projects build on earlier Foundation involvement in individual projects, initiatives or clusters of work.

The Foundation occasionally makes smaller grants for pilots or research, development and analysis work costing less than £10,000.

Most funded projects are between six months and three years in duration, but proposals that have a longer timescale will be considered.

The next deadline for outline applications is 15 March 2021 (23:59 GMT).
