BISI Outreach Grants are offered to support public engagement projects that promote a greater understanding of Iraq's history, society and culture. Past activities that have received funding through the scheme have ranged from lectures and publications to arts projects. 

Funding available

Applicants can apply for grants up to £1,000. The amount you request must be justified by an itemised budget. Grants can only fund expenses such as travel, venue, equipment, consultancy and publicity costs. They cannot be used to pay for wages.

Applicants should normally be residents of the UK. Preference will be given to activities taking place in the UK or Iraq.

Two references are needed in support of each application. Referees should be familiar with your project and be able to comment on its suitability for a BISI Outreach Grant. References must be emailed to the BISI Administrator at bisi@britac.ac.uk by the deadline above.
