Department of Psychology



You will not find all opportunities in this section (very unfortunately), but when we see anything new, we will aim to update it here straight away. This means, that each time you open this page, it should be as up-to-date as possible. For much more information about funding, internal deadlines, our quarterly GRANT bulletin, and lots of useful resources, check out The Research Grant Intranet!


Are you struggling to find a funding opportunity to fit your research? 

How we can help further: We run funding searches every month using certain keywords and criteria. If you let us know what funding you are after, we can help you by adding relevant keywords to our searches and adding such opportunities to our list.

How you can help: Please share any calls that you feel should be included here, anything you may have received, and any relevant information related to our departmental research. You might not be interested but someone else might be!


Research Professional is an online database of research funding opportunities and is a source of international research policy and practice news. The University of Cambridge has an institutional account which means that all University members can access the database and tools free of charge!
