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

Applications must be submitted via the Flexi-Grant system, accessible at https://britishacademy.flexigrant.com/

Intending applicants need to register themselves in the system, if not already registered, and should access full details by following the link from the Applicant Portal page to: BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants 2017-18 Round.

The deadline for applications is 5pm UK time on Wednesday 1 November 2017.

Funding

The British Academy continues to be able to offer awards derived from a range of different sources including both public funding and funds generously donated by other funders. In this round, for the first time in the Small Research Grants Programme, we are also able to offer awards in partnership with the Ministry of Science and Technology of Taiwan. Funds in this round are also available through partnerships with the Honor Frost Foundation, the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies, the Sino-British Fellowship Trust, the Sir Ernest Cassel Educational Trust, the Modern Humanities Research Association, the JME Trust, the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain and from endowments held by the Academy. All successful applicants will be clearly informed of the source of the funding of their grant when an award has been offered, and will be expected to include due acknowledgement of the funder and the Academy when disseminating the results of the research funded under this scheme.

Purpose of grant

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: 5pm UK time on 1 November 2017

Results expected: end March 2018

Earliest Start Date for Research: 1 April 2018
