Grants and Fellowships for Early Career Researchers in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
New

Thu 24 Oct 2019

Description

Higher Education in the UK and elsewhere is increasingly reliant on research funding through grants and fellowships. Postdoctoral grants and fellowships also prove key to pursuing an academic career. And yet, the multitude and variety of funders and types of funding, and the disparate information relating to funding, has made the process of applying a daunting and complex one. Where do you being? What are you eligible for? How do you manage your efforts? How do you even write a research proposal appropriate to the funder’s needs? All these questions and more are covered in this course.

Whilst not offering specific or bespoke information, the course will nevertheless provide participants with a general overview of the types of funding and funders out there, and the process of applying and writing a research proposal.

Target audience

PhD Students and Postdocs in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
