BISI can only fund direct costs such as equipment, travel expenses, and consultancy fees, normally up to a total of £6,000 – although more substantial awards may exceptionally be made. BISI cannot pay institutional overheads, salary costs, PhD studentships, or other normal living costs.
Under this scheme, applicants should normally be employed by, or have an official connection with, a UK Higher Education Institution. Proof of the applicant’s affiliation may be requested.
Please study the application form and guidance notes carefully before applying for a Conference Grant or a Research Grant.
Completed applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org in time for the deadline. Decisions will be announced in June.
Two letters of recommendation must be submitted in support of each application and should be sent to email@example.com by the deadline above.
Terms and Conditions
Successful applicants will need to agree to BISI’s Terms and conditions.
Grants are awarded to individuals and institutions by the BISI Council after assessment by the Fieldwork and Research Committee. Decisions are based on the quality and practicality of the proposed research, the costing of the work, the qualifications of the applicant to conduct the work, and the reports of referees.
