The popular British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grants is once again open for applications. The deadline is 16th October.
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.
Projects should plan to start between 1st April 2014 and 31st August 2014. Applications should be made online via the British Academy eGap website. Please contact RBS at an early stage for help and support with the bid.
If you’re not able to put a bid into this round, or the start dates don’t suit your project, please note that there will be another call in March 2014 with a deadline in April 2014.
