The British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Small Research Grants are available to support primary research in the humanities and social sciences.
From tackling domestic and sexual violence against women to pioneering new methods of curating historic videogame consoles, or investigating the 19th century living conditions of working-class communities in Northern Ireland, these grants have funded a huge variety of research projects over the years.
Here are seven projects to inspire you.
The British Academy's research funding strategy is focused on providing support for individuals through the award of Fellowships and small-scale grant funding.
All awards are for scholars in the Humanities and Social Sciences at postdoctoral level, i.e. after the award of a PhD. The Academy has no funding schemes for postgraduate students, masters students or candidates studying for other professional qualifications.
The Future of the Corporation is a major research and public engagement programme aiming to develop an evidence base that will serve as a foundation to redefine business for the 21st century and build trust between business and society.
The first phase of research is considering ten themes which will shape the future of business. This phase is gathering existing evidence, developing fresh thinking and identifying gaps in research. The findings will provide a distinctive insight into the current state of thinking - from both academics and business leaders - about the ways the corporation will evolve in the future.
In the second phase of research starting in 2019, the project will gather new empirical evidence, test new approaches and work with stakeholders to understand the best ways of applying these changes.
