Wellcome offers a a grant for a research based in low- and middle-income countries to improve health systems in those locations.

Grant types:

You can chose from two types of grant:

  1. Research grants: These grants are for small and larger-scale projects.
  2. Foundation grants: These grants support researchers who are conducting preliminary studies before designing research grant proposals. The grants are also for exploring possible innovations, under-researched areas and creative approaches.

Eligibility criteria:

  1. You can apply to the Health Systems Research Initiative if your research is based in a low- or middle-income country.
  2. The principal investigator for your study must be employed by an eligible organisation either in a low- or middle-income country or in the UK. If the principal investigator is based in the UK, there must be a clear partnership with, and scientific leadership from, co-investigators based in the countries where the project will take place.
  3. Proposals should generate evidence on how to strengthen and improve health systems in low- and middle-income countries. Research findings should inform the delivery of evidence-based interventions or structural changes that are of direct relevance to decision makers.
  4. You should describe how and why your project findings will have the potential to improve the health of people living in low- and middle-income countries.
  5. Applications from multidisciplinary teams that include biomedical scientists and social scientists are encouraged.


This year, the Health Systems Research Initiative has about £5 million to fund several awards. There are two types of grant. Both types include research expenses directly related to the study.

  1. Research grants: Approximately £4 million is available to fund five to ten research grants. These grants normally last up to three years, with a maximum duration of five years. There are no budget limits.
  2. Foundation grants: Each foundation grant has a maximum budget of £200,000 and lasts for 24 months.
