59 new Research Incentive Grants awarded

Following the March 2018 deadline and a thorough peer review process, the Trust is pleased to be able to support a total of 59 new projects led by Early Career Researchers in the Scottish universities. The successful projects, covering a wide range of academic disciplines, received funding totalling £495,627 with an average grant value of £8,400.
To mitigate the effects of industrial action on a number of campuses, the deadline was pushed to 21st March. Despite this, the trust received fewer applications than in the previous round, resulting in a higher success rate: 48%. The following chart shows the proportion of awards by university:
