Originally an ESRC funded research centre, COMPAS is now broadly reliant on several separate activity streams for sustainability: research, teaching and knowledge exchange.
Our research is funded mainly through grants with UK research councils, charities, philanthropic organisations, and the European Commission. We currently have grants with the organisations listed below under ‘Current Funders‘.
Our knowledge exchange income, comes from our KE initiatives namely The Migration Observatory and The Global Exchange on Migration and Diversity, which generate income from research grants and consultancy work.
Developing research proposals at COMPAS
We are interested in developing research projects or consultancy work, with organisations and individuals where the research supports our research strategy and research topics.
If you would like to discuss a research project, consultancy work or a funding opportunity please contact the Research Development Officer, Ella Tebay at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is also useful to discuss potential projects with the Head of Unit to confirm school support.
COMPAS does not have its own grants or stipends to award.
