The Leverhulme Small Research Grants application window has opened (we love it when a window opens!). The Grants support primary research in the humanities and social sciences and are for up to £10,000. They’re open to postdoctoral scholars, but you can apply as an independent if you don’t have an employing institution.
Applications are now open for the next cohort of the Fellowship, which will run from November 2021 until November 2022. They’re looking for social cohesion and democracy initiatives with online and offline elements. The 30 successful applicants will receive a monthly stipend, plus funds to get their project off the ground, and a whole host of virtual and in-person training.
To apply, you need a project idea you can describe in 280 characters (the length of a Tweet) and 750 words, as well as a 90-second video. There’s also a series of quick questions with short answers required, plus the usual budget plans and references.
Though it's open all year round, new year could be ideal time to start planning for an application to the Paul Hamlyn Foundation's Ideas & Pioneers Fund. Grants of up to £15K are available - all you need is a vision of a better society and ideas for change. Application is via a short online form and a two minute video - there's plenty of guidance on the website.
