UKRI funding for SMaRteN included ‘plus-funding’ to pump prime new research into student mental health. Over the life of the network, we will be running four funding calls. The total funding available through these calls is £400,000, with approximately £100,000 allocated to each call.
Our first funding call is open for applications until 9th May 2019 and focuses on the question “What is distinctive about student mental health?”
It is expected that projects will focus on pilot or preliminary work to support larger, subsequent grant applications. Applications from Early Career Researchers are particularly welcome. We aim to encourage stronger research into student mental health and to build a cross-disciplinary research capacity in the field of student mental health. The Higher Education sector does not simply need more data, we need better data. By better, we mean research that;
- Is based on robust and clear methodology,
- Is stakeholder informed and has strong student engagement,
- Makes good use of existing data,
- Is collaborative,
- Is generalisable and reproducible.
SMaRteN will be looking to fund projects that set a new standard for research around mental health in Higher Education. Researchers should have a clear plan for how they will ensure transparency in their work, including where appropriate, sharing data and/or pre-registering studies.
We will be holding a mini sandpit event for those interested in the funding call and in the topic of measuring student Mental Health. Read more about the event and how to register your interest here
