British academy

Sino-British Fellowship Trust

The Academy receives a generous grant from the Sino-British Fellowship Trust (SBFT), established by the late Dr Elizabeth Frankland Moore, to support individual or co-operative research projects. Research may be conducted either in Britain or in China, or in both countries, and must involve person-to-person contacts.

Level of award: Up to £10,000.
Method of application:  Applications must be submitted via the BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants scheme in e-GAP2, the Academy's electronic grant application system. Successful applications for the award of a BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grant with relevant research topics will be forwarded to the SBFT for approval. It should be noted that the Academy may be unable to offer support should the SBFT decline to confirm funding.

Applicants should keep in mind the timing of the earliest start date  for awards offered through the Small Research Grants scheme - in the current round this is 1 April 2015.

Please note: The SBFT now wishes to give preference to applications that will help to achieve sustainable development in the problems arising from environmental issues and pollution.
