Grant title: Applications for Small Grants in Humanities and Social Science

Deadline: 11th July 2019

Small Grants fund programmes of activities that enable researchers to build professional networks, develop new research agendas and increase the impact of their work.

Who can apply?

You can apply for a Small Grant if you're a humanities or social science researcher with a compelling research vision and you want to do one or more of the following:

  • build your professional network
  • develop a new research agenda
  • increase the impact of your work.

You must have a PhD or equivalent and the relevant experience to deliver a programme of activities.

You must be based at a university or other research organisation in the UK, Republic of Ireland or a low- or middle-income country.

Programme of activities

You must propose a programme of events or activities, not one-off events or activities.

The programme could include a combination of different activities. Typical activities are likely to include organising conferences, seminars, meetings or workshops, and any research related to delivering these.

Your activities should bring together people who are relevant to your research, such as academics, policy makers and/or healthcare practitioners.

Who can't apply?

You can't apply if you want to:

  • conduct a pilot study
  • develop a health intervention
  • organise a one-off event
  • travel to and attend a conference 
  • write up a book
  • do an academic course, such as a Master's degree or PhD

What we offer?

A Small Grant is usually up to £30,000. Grants usually last for six to twelve months but the duration can be flexible, eg for a series of annual conferences.

You should ask for a level and duration of funding that's justifiable for your proposed activities.
