The next round of the British Academy / Leverhulme Trust’s Small Research Grants programme will open on 12th April 2017, with a deadline of 24th May 2017.
These grants support primary research in the humanities and social sciences – up to £10,000 is available for defined research projects with a duration of up to 24 months.
This is by far the British Academy’s most popular scheme in terms of applications received and number of awards made, and awards in 2015/16 were made to academics working at over 100 Institutions around the UK.
All projects should have an identifiable outcome on completion of the Academy-funded component of the research. Applications for collaborative or individual projects are equally welcome, as are applications from international groups of scholars, provided that 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.
Further details will be made available online when the round opens.
