You will need to complete all the sections on this page before you can save.


This form is to be used only for an Outline application to a specific activity. Please read the scheme specific guidance notes on the relevant Council's website prior to completing this form.


Organisation where the Grant would be held

Organisation is the research organisation where the grant would be held.  Only those organisations that have registered to submit proposals through Je-S are available for selection. If the required organisation does not appear in the list, please consult that organisation's research grant administration department regarding plans for Je-S registration. The organisation list is maintained by the Je-S Helpdesk.

If an organisation appears in the list, it does not necessarily mean that it is eligible to apply for research grants from the Council. Generally, research grants are open to UK Universities and similar organisations but eligibility can vary depending on the scheme. See the Investigators section and check the relevant Council's funding guide for further details and contacts concerning eligibility. 


The department list for the organisation is centrally maintained. If the required department is not listed or is named incorrectly, consult the organisation's research grant administration department, who should then contact the Je-S Helpdesk.

Your Reference

Use "Your reference" to help distinguish easily between proposals in users' Current Documents lists. The reference is intended to be a unique identifier for the proposal and is unrelated to the reference that the organisation would be asked to provide if a grant were awarded.  If an organisation does not have a system for referencing grant proposals, users should create their own.

Title of Research Project

The title should be as informative as possible, capturing the essence of the research.

It should not exceed 150 characters and must be completed using:

Standard ASCII characters and a limited set of accented characters may be used (Je-S character set). Avoid using specialist characters and symbols outside of the Je-S character set make this a link (e.g. mathematical symbols) because they may not transfer successfully to other computer systems.
