HARI Funding

HARI Funding

HARI has just launched its first call for applications for Start-up Funding for 2021-22. Further funding streams will be announced in early 2022.

Start-up Funding Stream

The Humanities and Arts Research Institute (HARI) at Royal Holloway University of London has a limited amount of funds available for small collaborative projects.

HARI funding may be applied towards the pursuit of research in various ways, for example, funding and organizing of research events, workshops, symposia, conferences. Successful projects are expected to generate exchange across the College and benefit a range of colleagues and students. 

Research must be of an interdisciplinary nature. In both its planning and execution it should include scholars from more than one discipline and/or engagement with one or more external partners.

Since HARI aims to generate Impact through its activities, applicants should consider forms of public engagement and knowledge transfer. Applications demonstrating that external funding is sought alongside HARI funding will be viewed positively, as will an indication of plans for future funding applications.

Applicants can apply for up to £500 of Start-up funding.

Any budget must be spent and claimed by the end of the financial year.

Application forms can be accessed here and completed forms should be submitted to

The closing date for the first fuding call is January 17th 2022.
