Remit Query Form
All applicants should consult the AHRC Disciplines webpage before submitting a full proposal. If you are still unsure whether your research is suitable for AHRC funding, please complete the remit query form below.
In order that your query can be quickly and accurately assessed, it is essential that you clearly explain your research aims, plans, and where you think that the main novelty of your project lies. All arts and humanities methodologies and research questions should be clearly articulated and presented in jargon-free language. It is also important that any interdisciplinary aspects that may overlap with another Research Council’s remit are flagged-up.
It is not necessary to provide detailed background information, references or costs relating to your research within the form, at this point it is simply the subject disciplinary aspects of the project that need to be assessed.
What happens next?
Your pre-application query will be assessed by AHRC's Remit Team to ascertain the level of arts and humanities remit within the project. The remit team consult colleagues within AHRC and other research councils to give the best advice possible about how to proceed with your proposal. If it is decided your proposal is best suited to another research council, we will refer you to that council's remit team.We aim to respond to remit queries within two weeks. If you have any further questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that all decisions made by the AHRC’s remit team are final. The Remit Team is not able to revisit or review decisions that applicants may disagree with.
