Our grant programmes
The Macular Society has two calls for grant applications each year. In April we invite applications for Research Grants and PhD Studentships. In July we invite applications for Seedcorn grants.
Grants of up to £250,000 over three years are available for research at UK institutions only. Projects can be for the maximum term or for a shorter period (e.g. two years), as long as the project is deemed to be good value for money.
Studentships of up to £120,000 are available to cover a stipend, fees and consumables over three years. PhD students should be based at a UK institution and a graduate in a relevant subject. Payment of PhD fees will be limited to the home rate. Students required to pay the international rate can still be recruited but will need to cover the balance from other sources.
The 2023 call for Research grant and PhD Studentship applications is now closed.
Deadline for receipt of preliminary applications was 29 May 2022.
The application success rate in 2021 was 25%.
Grants of up to £25,000 are available for projects with a maximum duration of 1 year, at a UK institution. Applications may be for clinical or non-clinical research. Seedcorn grants are not intended to be used as ‘top-up’ funds to meet a shortfall in funding from another body.
The 2023 grants round will open in July 2022.
The application success rate in 2022 was 27%.
