AWARDS AND RESEARCH GRANTS 2012-2013
Our second round of applications for grants to assist scholars wishing to pursue research in all fields of Persian/Iranian and wider Persian world studies are invited. These are for scholars and postgraduate level students and include anthropology, archaeology, art, history, linguistics, literature, philosophy, religion. political science and cognate subjects.
Following British Academy guidelines, most of BIPS’ research income is set aside for collaborative research projects. BIPS is currently seeking to attract applications from scholars in three “umbrella” programmes:
1 Ancient Iran: (Programme Director: Professor Eberhard Sauer, University of Edinburgh: Eberhard.Sauer@ed.ac.uk)
2 Empire & Authority in the Persianate World (Programme Director: Professor Charles Melville, University of Cambridge: firstname.lastname@example.org)
3 Modern Iran: Chivalry in Persianate Culture – (Programme Director: Dr Lloyd Ridgeon, University of Glasgow: Lloyd.Ridgeon@glasgow.ac.uk)
If you are interested in finding out more about any of these projects, please contact the Programme Directors. Alternatively, visit our website http://www.bips.ac.uk
Grants are awarded mainly to cover travel to and research within Iran and wider Persian world, but grants may also be available to those wishing to study similar material in universities, museums and other learned institutions outside Iran. Funds are NOT available for course work, nor will college or university fees be paid. Candidates are required to satisfy the selectors that their proposals are realistic in this respect. All applications must include accurate and realistic budgets and a detailed breakdown of costs. Early publication of the research is an absolute condition of the award and BIPS should see and approve the appropriate acknowledgement of BIPS in any proposed publication prior to its actual appearance. Grant-holders who have failed to meet these conditions will not be considered for further awards in the future.
Application forms and a copy of our notes for guidance may be downloaded from the website or obtained from the Secretary, at the above address. Two references will be required and referees should be requested to send them directly to the Secretary. It is the responsibility of the applicants to ensure that these references arrive in time; without them the applications will not be considered. This is our second round of awards for the year 2012/2013 and selection will be made at the end of October 2012.
Applications for our second round of awards should therefore be sent to the Secretary no later than Monday 1st October, 2012.
