#FundingThursdays - Research funding opportunities every other Thursday!

Unfortunately, I ran into the same problems you have. All small research grants I’ve seen are aimed at postdoc researchers. But I’ll keep an eye out as I continue to compile these :slight_smile:


Thanks for looking into this, Josh!

Hello everyone! On my wild search for money, I came across this amazing list of funding resources: https://research.jhu.edu/rdt/funding-opportunities/

Unfortunately for me, most of these are in the US (and I’m based in the UK), but maybe it’d be helpful for someone from the US! :dollar: :dollar: :dollar:


Amazing, thanks for sharing! :heart:
