Hello, Prolific! Do you know about any other grants similar to the one offered by Prolific where one could apply for a small amount of money (£1000-£2000) for participants’ payments? Most of the available funding I found so far is either for postdoctoral researchers or higher (I’m a PhD student), and the funding for which I could apply as a student covers only conference, travel or training fees, but not participants’ fees. Suggestions about any such “small research funds” to apply for would be super appreciated! Thanks!

Hello,
I would like to know how i can apply for some funding for our study.
We got an approval and now we want to start data collection but we are looking for additional funding because at first we planned to be collecting data at one of the central hospital but due to Covid-19 traveling restrictions, participants are not visiting the hospital as before so we will be travelling to their communities for data collection hence a need for an extra funding. We need an addition of about $600 to cover our traveling costs and for participants compansatory payments.

Please let me know on what is required of us to apply for such funding.

Thank you!

Frank Kaphesi,
Malawi.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Hi @Oluwatobi_emmanuel, apologies for the confusion.

Somebody is looking for a grant of that size. We’re not offering one :slight_smile:

Hey @Frank_Kaphesi, welcome to the community! :tada:

We’re currently running a competition offering £10,000, but it only funds online reseearch using Prolific.

I’m afraid that the in-person research you’re running doesn’t qualify.
