Researcher led initiatives

Humanities researcher-led initiatives 2016/17

Applications are invited from researchers (research staff and PGRs) for funding (of up to £500) to support projects to bring researchers from different Schools together to engage in some form of professional, personal or career development activity.

This initiative is intended to support the personal, professional and career development of researchers across the Faculty of Humanities. It aims to encourage  researchers to initiate a development opportunity which will help them to influence or inspire their colleagues, and which will have an impact on the career development of themselves and others.

There will be three funding rounds throughout the 2016/17 academic year:

  • First round deadline: 31 October 2016 for projects scheduled to occur during semester one.
  • Second round deadline: 27 March 2017 for projects schedule to occur during semester two.

Researchers are strongly encouraged to carefully read the guidance notes before submitting their application:
