Support is intended for researchers wishing to operate within the Strategic Research Initiatives currently sponsored by the Institute. Proposals may relate to all historical periods up to and including contemporary Turkey. The BIAA is especially interested in supporting projects that employ comparative and cross-disciplinary approaches, as well as those that seek to establish collaborations with other institutions with a view to generating larger overall project funding. Organisers of potentially diverse and collaborative projects should identify the main strand of their investigation and the main research questions for which BIAA funding is being sought.
Researchers across the entire career spectrum (from postdoctoral fellows to senior academics), of any nationality working in the UK or abroad for a UK Higher Education Institution, as well as researchers directing projects that are formally and demonstrably based in the UK, are eligible to apply for a BIAA Research Grant. Projects should be located within the field of the arts, humanities and the social sciences and should be related to and/or undertaken in Turkey and the Black Sea region.
Applicants in any doubt about their eligibility or any other aspect of their application are advised to contact the Institute’s London manager via email at email@example.com.
Please note that all applicants for research grants who require a letter of support from the BIAA to submit to the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism with their permit application at the end of December, and those who need to be named in a support letter from the BIAA to the Ministry, must respond to this call. All other applicants should apply for the April deadline (to be announced in early 2023).
It is essential that applicants read the notes for applicants and the accompanying conditions of awards before completing the application form. Applicants in any doubt about their eligibility or any other aspect of their application are advised to contact the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA), where staff will be pleased to assist. The Institute welcomes applications for research that fits within the Strategic Research Initiatives currently sponsored by the Institute.
The deadline for receipt of the application form, budget and references is 3rd November 2022 at 23:59. The BIAA Research Committee will consider all applications received before this date. Research funded by the Institute under this call for applications must be undertaken in the period between May 2023 and March 2024.
