The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust rarely supports academic research but is still a useful funder
The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, a Quaker organisation that funds work tackling the causes of conflict and injustice in society, awards funding through five main programmes covering the following issues: power and accountability, peace and security, rights and justice, and sustainable futures. There is also a cross-cutting programme.
This year, JRCT applicants must register to apply for the cross-cutting programme by 6 August and for the other programmes by 13 August. The deadline for applications is 23 August for cross-cutting bids and 31 August for all others. Applicants should have a clear idea of how their research will make a difference and fits with the trust’s priorities.
