The RICS Research Trust is an established grant award entity supporting research in the disciplines of land, real estate and construction right across the world.

The RICS Research Trust as a charity has a remit of supporting, delivering and disseminating high quality, independent reliable knowledge and future thinking through research funding.

The Trust is administered by a Board of Trustees, comprising members of RICS and independent appointees. The Board meets to consider awards twice a year in May and December.

These projects may be undertaken by chartered surveyors or others who are, in the opinion of the Trustees, adequately qualified to undertake the research. Both major research projects from established researchers as well as smaller scale proposals from younger researchers will be considered.

The RICS Research Trust has set out its strategy and it is recommended that this is considered during the application process.
