First Grants Scheme

The First Grants Scheme supports academic researchers to develop projects which contribute to knowledge and understanding of the screen industries in Yorkshire and the Humber. Researchers based at higher education institutions in the UK were awarded funding of up to £10,000 in order to support their research.

The scheme supports researchers who have not been a principal investigator or co-investigator already on a grant worth more than £5,000. It was developed with the help of the Early Career Research Network.
