Description: 

The UK Medical Research Council (MRC) have announced two research grant funding opportunities through the Applied Global Health Research Board for Applied Global Health Research. The board supports applied global health research that will be of direct and primary benefit to the health of vulnerable populations.
Two grant schemes are available through the Applied Global Health Research Board:
1. Research grants: MRC research grants are suitable for focused research projects that may be short- or long- term in nature, cost up to £1 Million, and can be awarded for up to five years.
2. Partnership grants: The partnership grant scheme is designed to support novel partnerships between diverse groupings of researchers.

The funder will accept proposals of all sizes, including large applications over £1 million and small to medium-scale applications. There is no limit to the amount of funding you can apply for, however, the resources you request should be commensurate with the objectives of your proposal. Value for money is an important review consideration. Additional budgetary considerations and stipulations are provided in the supplementary guidance instructions. This document provides details of the assessment criteria and how this funding opportunity differs from other MRC schemes.

The call is open to and particularly encourages res: earchers to apply from LMICs as well as principal investigators who are based in the UK and working in equal partnership with LMIC investigators.
