Grants and awards
We do not fund students directly, instead our post-graduate funding is provided to universities and they select and administer individual student awards, therefore prospective students should contact the institution at which they wish to study to enquire about the funding available.
The AHRC works with the RCUK Grants Team who provide support for Je-S System users and administrative and transactional activities in support of delivering our funding activities.
Applications and proposals: Please contact the Je-S Helpdesk for technical assistance with submitting applications and proposals, maintenance requests and general information.

Joint Electronic Submission System (Je-S): There is a dedicated Helpdesk that provides telephone and email support for the Je-S system. They are available between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, and can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 01793 444164.
