British Academy Fellowships

  Wednesday, 23 Aug 2023 | Funding Deadline

The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. The following awards are open for application:

  • Postdoctoral fellowships: offers outstanding early career researchers the opportunity to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in an academic environment. This scheme aims to help develop the award holder’s curriculum vitae and boost their prospects of obtaining a permanent academic post. The primary emphasis is on the completion of a significant piece of publishable research, and the integration of the award holder into the community of established scholars within their field. (Deadline: 4 October 2023)
  • Mid-career fellowships: allows successful applicants to obtain time freed from normal teaching and administrative commitments. The time bought by the scheme should be devoted to the completion of a major piece of research, and the Academy will also look for evidence of a clear commitment to a strategy of public engagement with and communication of the results of the research during the period of the Fellowship. (Deadline: 23 August 2023)
