British Academy (BA)/Leverhulme Small Research Grants

​Deadline – 1 November 2017 (5pm UK time). 

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.


  • Awards are open to postdoctoral scholars (or equivalent) who are ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom. 
  • 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.

Period of award

Grants are tenable for between 1 and 24 months.

All applications should demonstrate that Academy funds are sought for a clearly defined, discrete piece of research, which will have an identifiable outcome on completion of the Academy-funded component of the research.
