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 2019-20.

HARI will consider applications on any topic area but will give preference to applications that intersect with the theme for 2019-20 which is 'Genders and Sexualities'.

The increased emphasis placed on generating grant income and impact is reflected in the way HARI’s Steering Committee will assess funding applications for 2019-20. 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 10 July 2019.

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 2019/20. 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: November 15th 2019, January 15th 2020, and March 15th 2020. 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
