Dear Members,

We would like to share the following research fund information from The International Research Network for Science & Belief in Society for your interest.

 

The International Research Network for Science & Belief in Society is excited to launch our 2022-2023 Grant Programmes. There are four schemes now open for applications: Seed Funding Grants (deadline Oct 29), Small Research Grants (deadline Nov 12), International Early Career Researcher Mentorship Grants (deadline Nov 26), and International Collaborator Grants (deadline Nov 26). More info about each scheme can be found below.

*Grant Information Webinar (5 October 2021)*
We will be holding an informational webinar about these grant programmes on October 5, 2021, which will be running twice during the day, to accommodate those in different time-zones (09:00 and 16:00 UTC+1/BST). If you would like to attend this webinar please inform us here <https://birminghamcoaal.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1ZcmAukNOMYqsvQ>, and we will contact you with further details.

*Seed Funding Grants*
This programme will fund projects between £1,000-£10,000, for a duration of up to 9 months, between the dates of February 1, 2022–January 31, 2023. Researchers at any career stage who work on the social study of science and religion in society are welcome to apply for this programme by October 29, 2021.

*Small Research Grants*
This programme will fund projects between £5,000-£20,000, for a duration of 12 months, between the dates of February 1, 2022–July 31, 2023. Researchers at any career stage who work on the social study of science and religion in society are welcome to apply for this programme by November 12, 2021.

*International Early Career Researcher Mentorship Grants*
This programme will fund up to £5000 for personnel costs for two researchers (mentor/mentee) to collaborate virtually on a defined output on which the mentee will be lead author (e.g. journal article, book chapter, grant application, curriculum development, book proposal or similar). This programme will fund projects for a duration of 6 months, between the dates of February 1, 2022–January 31, 2023.

Up to £1000 of the funding may be used as an honorarium for the mentor, with the rest being used to support the mentee.  Early career researchers who work on the social study of science and religion in society are welcome to apply as PI for this programme by November 26, 2021.

Eligible early career researchers are those who have a PhD or due to submit their thesis before the grant start date, or those who have equivalent career experience; generally applicants will be no more than 7 years post-PhD, although exceptions regarding career breaks will be considered.

*International Collaborator Grants*
This programme will fund up to £5,000 for personnel costs for two or more researchers to collaborate virtually on a defined output (e.g. journal article, book chapter, grant application, curriculum development, book proposal).  This programme will fund projects for a duration of 6 months, between the dates of February 1, 2022–January 31, 2023, and the grant funding should be split between the researchers. Researchers at any career stage who work on the social study of science and religion in society are welcome to apply for this programme by November 26, 2021.

Please note: Researchers may only be lead applicant on one application, but may apply as co-investigator on multiple applications.  If you do not have an institutional affiliation, please contact us for further guidance in advance of submitting your application.  We welcome applications from academic researchers based in any country worldwide.
