Applications Invited For New Research Funds 2012
The Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) is an independent and self-supporting UK based international learned society concerned to advance understanding of higher education, especially through the insights, perspectives and knowledge offered by systematic research and scholarship.
As part of the Society's programme of strategic initiatives aimed at sustaining research into higher education, the Society is offering a series of annual research awards. This scheme is in its second year of operation, following the first annual awards under this scheme which were made in 2011.These awards are funded entirely by the Society, and intended to support new research into higher education.
The Society is offering:
- Up to four awards annually of £10,000 each for research focused on any aspect of higher education submitted under three overarching themes: Higher Education Policy, Higher Education and Society, and Higher Education Practice.
These Awards are only open to individual members of the Society at the date of application and thus are part of the benefits of membership. Where a proposal is submitted by a research group or team, the lead proposer must be an individual member of the Society.
- Two to four scoping awards annually of £5,000 each for the exploration of any new or emerging area of higher education research leading to the development of a plan for further research.
These awards are open to all and applications are welcome from members and non members of the Society.
Applications open on 1st July 2012 and close on 1st September 2012
