The BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants are available to support primary research in the humanities and social sciences. These awards, 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. 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.
Deadline for Applicants – 1 November 2017 (5pm UK time)
If you are considering an application to this Call please note an important change to their process this year
Previously, applications were submitted by the deadline date and then the referee nominated by the applicant had a further window (typically a week) to add their reference to the system. Now, applicants are still required to nominate one referee but they must ensure that the supporting statement from their chosen referee is submitted on the British Academy grant management system BEFORE the deadline. The system will not allow you to formally submit the application for approval before the reference section is completed.
Your application must then be approved by MMU’s central RKE team on the BA’s system following our internal approvals process as before.
