The British Academy’s Rising Star Engagement Awards (BARSEAs) are designed to enable established early career academics to actively engage in the work of the Academy and to enhance their own skills and career development through the organisation of events, training, and mentoring activities for a wide range of other early career researchers.
Please note – this scheme is NOT an offer to enable a scholar to undertake research.
