Research Councils UK (RCUK) is the strategic partnership of the UK's seven Research Councils.

For AHSS, the two most common sources of funding are the Economic and Social Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The core terms and conditions for all councils are harmonised; the August 2017 version of these can be found here.
