Unfortunately, the RDS cannot:
- support applications not intended for national peer-reviewed funding bodies
- provide supervision or informal support for students
- draft sections of funding applications
- carry out any of the research proposed (unless we agree to be a co-applicant and appropriate costs are included in the grant)
To make the most of the RDS and to support the service, we ask researchers to approach us well in advance of application deadlines, familiarise themselves with the scope and eligibility of their intended funder, inform the RDS of the outcome of their applications, and provide feedback on our service through our post advice surveys.
Please note: The RDS cannot and does not promote or endorse any application or intervention.
