The British Academy is able to bid for funds from the Sino-British Fellowship Trust (SBFT) to support individual or co-operative research projects, in the fields of the humanities and social sciences. Projects may be conducted either in Britain or in China, or in both countries, and must involve person-to-person contacts. All researchers must be of postdoctoral or equivalent status.

Scope of awards
British scholars wishing to visit China in connection with a project involving collaboration with Chinese colleagues (archive or library work with no element of personal collaboration would not be considered acceptable).
British scholars wishing to invite Chinese scholars to visit Britain in connection with a collaborative project.
British scholars wishing both to visit China and to invite Chinese scholars to visit Britain in connection with a collaborative project.
Small workshops concerned with joint research on a collaborative project.
Both longer-term Fellowships and short visits in connection with a larger project will be considered.

Level of grant
Grants of up to £10000 are awarded for any one project. Most awards are around the £4000 to £5000 level.
Grants are intended to cover travel and maintenance expenses and are not intended to cover major research expenses.
