The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its small grants in humanities and social science. These support programmes of activities that enable researchers to establish and develop networks, explore new areas of research and increase the impact of their work. The programme could include a combination of different activities, such as organising conferences, seminars, meetings or workshops, and any research related to delivering these. Activities should bring together people who are relevant to the research, such as academics, policy makers or healthcare practitioners.
Social sciences and humanities researchers based at a university or other research organisation in the UK, Republic of Ireland or a low- or middle-income country may apply. They must hold PhD or equivalent and the relevant experience to deliver a programme of activities.
Grants are usually worth up to £30,000 and researchers from low- and middle- income countries working in high-income countries can request up to £20 per day for extra costs. Grants usually last for six to 12 months but the duration can be flexible, for example, for a series of annual conferences.
