The Managers of the G C Grindley Fund will consider applications from undergraduates for grants specifically to enable research in the field of behaviour and its relation to mental processes and underlying physiological mechanisms.

The funds will normally be given for living/accommodation costs, with the maximum maintenance period being 12 weeks. The Managers will also consider the funding of short research projects not exceeding three months that extend or augment PhD work, with a view to publication. The Managers will make awards only to persons working at, or intending to work at, the University of Cambridge, or to those collaborating with persons working at the University of Cambridge.

Applicants must complete the application form and provide a letter of support from their intended project supervisor, who must be a member of University staff, at Principal Supervisor level. Supervisors may not apply on behalf of students and only one student per supervisor will be supported.

Successful applicants will be required to submit a short summary (half page of A4) of their achievements following the funding award at the end of their project.

Applications are now open and should be sent by email to

Deadline: 26 April 2024.

Applications that are incomplete at the time of the deadline will not be considered.
