British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Small Research Grants announced

The British Academy is awarding £1.4 million to support 160 research projects throughout the UK in its latest round of BA/Leverhulme Trust Small Research Grants.

The awards will support academics at 64 universities and research institutions, as well as five independent scholars, studying topics ranging from the impact of language barriers on access to public health information to the regulation of cryptocurrencies in the FinTech industry.

Funding for 2020–2021 is provided by the Leverhulme Trust, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Wellcome Trust, Society for Advancement of Management Studies and Sino-British Fellowship Trust.

The BA/Leverhulme Trust Small Research Grants funding scheme awards up to £10,000 to academics in the humanities and social sciences – including disciplines such as History, Philosophy, Linguistics, Sociology and Business and Management Studies – helping to cover the cost of expenses arising from a specific research project. 

In this round, 81% of grants were awarded to researchers based at institutions outside of the ‘Golden Triangle’ of Oxford, Cambridge and London.

The full list of 2021 BA/Leverhulme Trust Small Research Grants can be found on the British Academy website.
