Research Guidance

We understand that putting together a grant application can be a challenging feat, especially if you are new to research. This is why the team at PRUK have developed some research guidance to help you think about the steps and measures you need to take when preparing a grant application for funding.

Preparing your PRUK research application

Although this guidance is directed at applications within PRUK, the basic principles can transfer to many of the different funding opportunities that are available as the core information requested by each funder is similar.

You may also wish to read our blogs that are updated continuously with the latest updates, which include tips on developing your application. You can see the latest blog on how to develop your application here.

The PRUK team also gave a presentation on how to develop an application for the BOPA-PRUK Research Award scheme, which contains some useful information on the key considerations of putting a grant application together.

You might also find PRUK’s Research Strategy useful – you can find this here.

Partnership with the RPS

Our collaborative relationship with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) means that we can benefit from additional research resources and we are able to pass this on to pharmacy researchers. We work closely with the RPS to develop guidance for researchers across the profession:

See the RPS science and Research Guidance Hub for additional guidance at every stage of the research cycle.
