This is an exciting time for the British Academy as we develop new and innovative ways to promote the role and value of the humanities and social sciences.

Excellence for the future

Your support is important to us and will allow us to develop new programmes which nurture outstanding talent and inform the future, including:

  • Providing seed-corn funding for researchers wishing to test and develop new and innovative approaches;
  • Funding research fellowships for the most talented academics in the UK and overseas;
  • Developing a new network for talented early career researchers with demonstrable potential for engagement and outreach  focusing on the big issues of our time;
  • Providing independent public policy advice;
  • Engaging the public in the big issues of our time through events and activities;
  • Championing the value of studying the humanities and social sciences to school and university students, particularly in relation to language learning.
