Post Doctoral Travel Grants

The British Academy administers funds on our behalf, to support travel costs relating to research projects. Awards are particularly aimed at recent post doctoral scholars at universities in the United Kingdom. In general, awards for travel costs do not exceed £1000.  However, applications for these grants must be combined with an application to the British Academy for one of their Small Research Grants, which cover other costs up to a total of £7,500.


Application forms and further information for the Post Doctoral Travel Grants should be obtained directly from the British Academy as follows:

The Research Grants Department,
The British Academy
10 Carlton House Terrace
Tel 0207 969 5200
Applications should be made on the British Academy's "Small Research Grant" application form.  Where an applicant seeks both travel and other costs, a single application form should still be used. Applications are usually considered by the British Academy during the Spring of each year.
