Applications are open for the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grants 2018. The grants are available to support primary research in the humanities and social sciences. 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. Grants are tenable for between 1 and 24 months.

  • Grant up to £10,000 in value and tenable for up to 24 months, are provided to cover the cost of the expenses arising from a defined research project.

  • Applications require the approval of the applicant’s employing institution, but are not limited to those of any particular status (e.g. Lecturer, Professor etc);
  • Application may be made by independent scholars (who should choose ‘independent scholar’ as the relevant choice from the list of organisations in Flexi-Grant);
  • Co-applicants may be from anywhere in the world, but the Principal Applicant must be ordinarily resident in the UK.
