Alcohol Research UK is dedicated to supporting new research in the alcohol field. Over the years we have awarded over £12 million in funding to 500 projects, many of which have made a significant contribution to the evidence base in this area.

Grants programme – April 2017 to March 2018

Applicants should read both our Research Strategy and the appropriate Guidance for Applicants documents before developing their proposals.  Applicants should also ensure they apply to the scheme that is most appropriate to the scale and design of their project.

The programme for 2017/18 will be announced around the end of April
