  • AHRC Fellowship Scheme This fellowships scheme has recently been revised to enhance the development of research leadership across the arts and humanities. The scheme now provides opportunities for mid and senior career researchers to carry out focused individual research, alongside collaborative activities, which may potentially have a transformative effect on their areas of expertise.
    Fellowships can be awarded for research in any subject area within the AHRC’s remit and proposals for research may be at different stages of development as long as considerable high quality research outputs are intended to flow directly from the Fellowship. A range of activities, including knowledge exchange, may be included in proposals and the scheme incorporates elements of the former Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts and Knowledge Transfer Fellowships schemes.
    Max value £250,000
  • AHRC Research Grants Scheme The scheme is aimed at supporting well-defined research projects, so enabling individual researchers to collaborate with other individuals and organisations by carrying out high quality research in the arts and humanities
