Postgraduate students are not eligible to apply.
Applicants must be ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands (that is, classed as ‘ordinarily resident’ for tax purposes) or currently employed overseas by a recognised UK overseas research organisation.
UK research organisations based overseas may apply to be recognised by demonstrating that they satisfy both the following conditions:

Awards will not be made retrospectively: this means that the work for which support is requested must not have commenced before the award is announced.
