Cohort study grants

Long-term, observational cohort studies have previously been supported through our specialist cohort study grants and reviewed by our Cohort Studies Council.


We are currently not accepting applications to this scheme.

If your study is an add-on to a current cohort study, you may consider funding through another type of grant.

Applications for new cohort studies should be made via our project grants.


Grants are tenable only at a United Kingdom university, NHS Trust, statutory social care organisation or other research institution.

Principal applicants should hold employment contracts that extend beyond the period of the grant.

Co-applicants and collaborators may be based at institutions outside the UK or at pharmaceutical or biotech companies.
