To advance our aim of providing platforms and activities to foster new, and develop capacity for, interdisciplinary and socially engaged research and education, we annually provide a range of small-scale funding and bursary opportunities to researchers at any level across the Faculty.

In light of Covid-19, we have reviewed our funding schemes and have launched our REACH-XR Small-Scale Funding Call. 

Funding Opportunities

Our REACH-XR Small-Scale funding call supports socially engaged research through providing opportunities for Arts and Humanities researchers at any level across two strands: Community Conversations (up to £400) and Digital Training Bursaries (up to £500).

The Research Development Manager for the Faculty of Arts & Humanities is the first point of contact for researchers looking to secure external funds for their grants.

In addition, Ed Stevens (Research Institute Manager) is happy to advise any researcher looking to apply for external public engagement grants (e.g. through the likes of the AHRC, ESRC, Wellcome or British Academy). Ed has expertise in participatory research methods and in wider public engagement with research activities and can advise accordingly.


Alongside the above AHRI call, there are a range of Faculty grants available to researchers.
