Funding Call: Writing Workshops 2020

The British Academy, as part of the UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), is inviting proposals for writing workshops in developing countries. These workshops should aim to support early career academics, promote the uptake of research emanating from developing countries in international journals and further intellectual interaction globally.

The intention of the Writing Workshops is to cultivate professional networks and mentorship and provide access for early career researchers in developing countries to the academic requirements of journals, including international journals, and to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to publish in these journals. This will support the progression of their academic careers and promote the visibility of their research in international publications.

Through the Writing Workshops programme, the British Academy aims to encourage and support early career researchers in ODA eligible countries to publish in high impact journals in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences, and enable them to build connections with academics and journal editors based in the UK and elsewhere.

Eligibility requirements

The lead applicant must be based at a UK university or eligible research institute, and be of postdoctoral or above status (or have equivalent research experience). The lead applicant must either be in a permanent position at the institution or have a fixed-term position for the duration of the award. Each application must have at least one co-applicant based in an ODA eligible country.

Value and duration

Awards are set at a maximum of £20,000. Funding must be used in the direct delivery of the workshops, and can cover travel and related expenses, subsistence costs, clerical assistance and consumables, networking, meeting and/or conference costs.

The deadline for submissions and UK institutional approval is: Wednesday 6 November 2019, 17.00 UK time.
