SIPR Grants

SIPR provides funding to support internationally excellent policing research under our three strategic research themes in order to shape strategic focus and respond to external drivers. 

Through our funding, we aim to enhance excellence of SIPR policing research through improvements to quality assurance processes.

Think Big Leverage Fund

The Scottish Institute for Policing Research (SIPR) is providing grants, to researchers based at SIPR member universities, aligned with our key strategic focus to support our member institutions and their researchers to acquire external research funding. In particular, we wish to support researchers to apply to larger, competitive research council funds (such as ESRC, EPSRC, Leverhulme, Carnegie, Horizon Europe etc.). 
The purpose of this fund is to provide support (both financial and otherwise) to researchers applying for external funding. It builds on the European Research Support fund we ran previously, which provided small grants to offset non-recoverable costs involved in preparing proposals at pre-award stages (such as travel costs for bringing teams together to write applications etc). It also builds on current support mechanisms offered through SIPR such as providing letters of support, and dissemination resourcing (i.e., knowledge exchange events, briefing papers etc.”
