British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grants Reopen

The ever-popular British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grants scheme has reopened this week, with a deadline of 7th November 2012:

British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grants

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

Collaborative or individual projects are equally welcome, and projects may involve a group of international scholars as long as the lead applicant is based in the UK. 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. Applications should be made online via the British Academy eGap website.
