The BISI offers a range of grants to support public events and academic work on Iraq and neighbouring countries that are not covered by BASIS-sponsored institutions. Our coverage includes anthropology, archaeology, geography, history, language and related disciplines within the arts, humanities, and social sciences from the earliest times until the present day.
We offer three types of grant, normally for residents of the United Kingdom:
- Academic grants for UK-led research projects and conferences: annual deadline 1 February
- Grants to Iraqi Visiting Scholars: annual deadline 1 February
- Outreach grants for public events and activities, usually in the UK and/or Iraq: annual deadline 1 October
All applications and references must be sent by email as pdf documents. We will consider out-of-cycle applications on an exceptional basis.
