You may recall that the Leverhulme Trust announced their support for the small grants scheme earlier this year. Small grants support humanities and social science research projects between £500 and £10,000. Funding is available for:
- initial stage project planning and development, e.g. pilot studies
- direct costs of research, e.g. library and archive visits or data collection
- advancement of research through workshops and conferences
- visits by or to partner scholars
Note that grants are not intended solely to support conference organisation, except where the conference is to disseminate research carried out as part of the grant.
If you’re interested in applying you need to act now: the deadline for applications is 30th May 2012, although there will be another call opening in September. Please contact RBS at an early stage for support with your application.
