UK Occupational Therapy Research Foundation research grants

The UK Occupational Therapy Research Foundation (UKOTRF) invites research proposals to be submitted on an annual basis. The overall aim of funding support is to meet identified research priorities within the profession and to build research capacity and capability within occupational therapy. There are two main grant categories:

  • Research Priority Grant - to support a major research project that clearly addresses an identified professional research priority area
  • Research Career Development Grant - to support doctoral studies or post-doctoral activity undertaken within five years of completing a PhD or similar for occupational therapists who intend to pursue a research career pathway.

From time to time, other grant funding opportunities may be offered via the UKOTRF including those supported by external sponsors.
