Training and Advice for Early Career Researchers applying for Arts, Humanities and Social Science Research Funding

This training workshop is designed to provide an introduction and overview of how to write research grant applications in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly for early career researchers (ECRs) or those with little or no experience of applying for research funding.

Primarily focused on UK Research Council applications (i.e. ESRC & AHRC), participants will be introduced to the various schemes available, success rates and tips on how to write an effective application.

The session will last for approximately three hours and will comprise:

  1. An overview of the application and decision-making process for research funding from the main UK funders in Arts and Humanities and the Social Sciences, including AHRC, ESRC, the Leverhulme Trust and the British Academy. 
  2. Insights talk from a senior member of staff who has recently sat on a Research Councils UK Grants Panel who will provide an overview of what panels look for in a good proposal.
  3. A detailed review of some of the key elements of an AHRC or ESRC proposal, including Pathways to Impact, Data Management and how to structure a Case for Support.

Light refreshments will be provided and the session is fully accessible.
