British Academy/Leverhulme – Small Research Grants Call for Proposals

The British Academy is inviting applications from scholars for the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grants scheme, which is administered by the Academy.

Applications must be submitted via the e-GAP system. Applicants must register, if they have not already done so, and access details by following the links to ‘funding schemes’ from the personal welcome page, and then the link to this scheme. 

Grants are available to support primary research in the humanities and social sciences. The first recourse for funding should be to your own institution (where applicable). Applications will not be considered for less than £500. The maximum grant is £10,000 over two years. Applications for collaborative or individual research projects are equally welcome under this scheme. Applications from international groups of scholars are welcome, provided there is a UK-based scholar as lead applicant.

Funds are available to facilitate initial project planning and development; to support the direct costs of research; and to enable the advancement of research through workshops or conferences, or visits by or to partner scholars. Applicants may seek support for any combination of eligible activity and cost up to the overall limit of £10,000. The Academy will assess applications equally on their merits, with no preference as to mode of enquiry.

Level of grant: Awards up to £10,000 Deadline for submission of applications: 11 May 2016, 5pm UK time Results expected: end July 2016 Earliest Start Date for Research: 1 September 2016
