The Nuffield Foundation grant-making reflects the Foundation's aim of bringing about improvements in society through research and practical experiment. The wide range of activities supported by the Foundation fall into two main categories:
The Foundation grant programmes that support research and innovation for beneficial social change.
As an independent Foundation, they are well placed to deal with sensitive issues, to challenge fashions and tacit assumptions. They support people with creative ideas to identify change or interventions which will have a practical impact for researchers, policy makers and practitioners. They do not fund the ongoing costs of existing work or services, or research that simply advances knowledge.
The Foundation also has an Education Programme which supports research and development work in specific priority areas. Unsolicited grant proposals are not accepted, but other funding opportunities arise from time to time.
The Foundation currently has seven grant programmes that support research and innovation for beneficial social change.
Application Form: Outline application first and if successful in proceeding to the next round, a full application will then be required.
