Annual BISA Funding Notices


BISA Working Group members are invited annually to apply for funding to support working group activities and events.

Applications should include:

§      Outline of proposed activities including title, dates and locations
§      Event/activity convenor(s) and institution/ email contact
§      Indication if this is a joint application with another working group
§      Amount applied for
§      Detailed budget for above proposed activities
§      Output from/ Impact of above planned activities

Due to the competitive nature of these awards, funds may be issued at a lower level than that sought. Not all applications will necessarily make it through to consideration at the next level.

Joint applications between Working Groups are welcomed.

Final judgements are made by the Research Sub-Committee of the BISA Board of Trustees, and then discussed by the Board itself. Working Groups will be informed of the outcome by the end of January.
In particular they will be considering possible outputs, inclusivity of membership and impact beyond the academic community, in that order, as deciding factors. In particular, BISA will prioritise plans that maximise the profile of the association and its charitable mission to represent cutting edge UK International Studies research.

Please email proposals and any enquiries to

The deadline for final applications through PPWG is ordinarily early December.
