How to apply

Application forms will be sent to university research offices in September. Interdisciplinary award applications must be initially submitted to the host university research office. Each university will select the best application which will be forwarded to Rosetrees for evaluation and external peer review.

Review process

All grants will be initially assessed by our internal scientific committee to confirm eligibility, adherence to application stipulations and that they fall within our scientific remit. All suitable applications will be sent for external peer review. Shortlisted candidates will be then considered by our research committee at which point the applications will be graded according to peer review, with the highest quality projects being selected.
