Owing to the success which BU has had as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science over the past three years, this year, the ESRC have invited us to become an official Festival partner.
This means that you will not have to apply through the competitive external process, but instead we will be allocating funding through an internal competition.
Funding is available for direct event costs (e.g. to hire an external venue, or pay for event materials) and the allocation for this will be reviewed by an internal panel. The maximum application is £1,500, but we expect awards to be in the region of £500.
Please note that the Festival takes place between 7th-14th November 2015. Further information about the Festival, including examples of previous events can be found here.
