- Applications from students
- Applications for follow-on work previously funded by Tenovus Scotland- Tayside, except in exceptional circumstances
- Additional points:
- While Tenovus Scotland - Tayside will consider applications from postdoctoral researchers, these require clear support from their current supervisor as a co-applicant.
- It is important that the principal investigator has tenure of contract for the duration of the award. In occasional cases where this is not the case, the nominated co-applicant who will substitute as principal investigator must be clearly identified
- The proposed start date and project duration should be clearly indicated on the application form
- The Tenovus Scotland - Tayside Regional Reference Code for each project must be used on all correspondence including and in particular on all invoices submitted to Tenovus Scotland - Tayside for payment
- Large Project Grants are primarily intended to support running costs, salaries and/or for research studentships. Requests to fund equipment for research will also be considered
- All applications will be submitted to detailed peer review
- We encourage researchers to publish their research in open-access journals.
