British Academy

To mark its centenary, the British Academy has launched a special initiative of long-term research project funding worth up to £150,000 per annum for a maximum of seven years.

The Centenary Research Projects aim to identify two major new and innovative strands of research in the humanities and social sciences that will make a significant impact on the development of scholarship in the first part of the twenty-first century. The projects will be required to address a clear and distinctive long-term research problem.

Project proposers must be based in the UK and normally employed in universities, museums, galleries or other approved independent research institutes. There is no pre-determined funding model so the Academy is open to suggestions from potential project directors about how best the money should be spent. The Academy is looking for distinctive projects that for one reason or another could not be funded by other bodies.
