We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

Lunar and meteorite samples loan scheme application form

Due to COVID 19 we had to pause the Lunar Loans scheme through to the end of 2020. We are hoping loans can recommence in early 2021 and are planning accordingly for that – though hope you all appreciate that these new plans may also be subject to change.

We have prioritised rescheduling loans which were due to take place in 2020, which means there is no Lunar Loan availability until the beginning of July 2021.

Bookings can now be made for the period from July to December 2021 via the webform – this is an extension of our usual 12 month advance booking window and we hope this will allow potential borrowers to plan their loan despite potential ongoing Covid related uncertainty. If you would prefer to enquire about availability before completing the application form, please contact Jane at STFCPublicEngagement@stfc.ac.uk

Please complete ALL sections of this form, fields marked with a * are mandatory.
