Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics

 

Apply for Research Funding

 

The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics supports funding applications from internal and external applicants at any career stage for projects held within our Faculty. The first point of contact for new applications is the Faculty’s Research Administrator Dr Anna Frohnwieser (researchadmin@mmll.cam.ac.uk). The Research Administrator and the relevant Director of Section should be contacted about any potential research grant application at the earliest opportunity for support with the application and costing.

 

Approval process

All applications have to go through a two-stage internal approval process before they are submitted to the funder. This process is the same for applications led by MMLL and applications led by other institutions, where a researcher in MMLL is a Co-I or collaborator.

 

All funding applications require approval by the Faculty’s Research Strategy Committee (RSC). Please visit the RSC page for guidance on the process and deadlines.

After receiving RSC approval, all applications need to be approved by the Research Operations Office before they can be submitted to the funder. Details of the approval process and deadlines can be found on the ROO website.

Any research involving human participants or personal data requires ethics approval. Information about ethics in research can be found on the University's research ethics page. The Faculty’s ethics forms can be found here.

 

The Research Administrator will advise you on deadlines and requirements for all approval stages for your specific application. For further details on the application process in MMLL please download the MMLL Funding application procedure document.
