HARI Funding

HARI runs a wide range of collaborative projects that cross disciplinary boundaries, so there is a variety of ways to get involved. HARI is currently inviting applications for research funding for the academic year 2020-21.

The increased emphasis placed on generating grant income and impact is reflected in the way HARI’s Steering Committee will assess funding applications for 2020-21. Applications that can demonstrate concrete plans for using HARI funding as a first step towards generating external research grant income, especially RC income, or that have a strong impact dimension will be prioritised.

As last year, there will be four funding streams. Applications forms are available via the links below:

More information about each of these funding streams can be found further down on this page. Please submit your applications to by 1 August 2020.

The HARI Steering Committee will consider applications and let you know the outcome of your application in mid-August. 

Both staff and students are also invited to apply for an ad-hoc grant to fund a project in 2020-21. We are particularly keen to hear from those at an early stage in their academic careers and students involved in postgraduate research. The application form for ad-hoc grants is available below:

There are three rounds of ad-hoc grant funding which can be applied for with the following deadlines: November 15th 2020, January 15th 2021, and March 15th 2021. Shortly after these dates the HARI Steering Committee will consider applications for ad-hoc grant funding and let you know the outcome of your application as soon as possible thereafter. More information about ad-hoc funding can be found further down on this page.

For all Royal Holloway students, opportunities are available to help with event podcasts, write up a conference review or event – please contact us direct on
