The John Fell Fund supports small grants of up to £7,500 and large grants (with no upper limit). The applicant may not ask for funding for his or her salary, but salary costs of a researcher/assistant may be requested. In the Law Faculty we often apply for funding for pump-priming activities, or workshops or for support for early career researchers.


This is for Oxford internal applicants only. If on a fixed term contract then the contract must run beyond the proposed project end date.


 Please see full scheme details on the John Fell Fund website.



The dates for the next standard round are:

Funder deadline: noon on Wednesday 7th October

Law Faculty deadline for first draft review: 7th September

Law Faculty deadline for initial expression of interest: 1st September, by email indicating whether you will be applying for a small or main grant.
