Funding area: Arts & Humanities, International, Social Sciences
Aiming to establish a two-way flow of scholars between Scotland and Europe, the RSE is pleased to offer European Visiting Research Grants, funded by the Caledonian Research Foundation, to researchers working in the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences.
There are two separate European Visiting Research Grant schemes available:
- Visits to Europe enable eligible staff in Scottish higher education institutes to visit other European countries overseas for periods of between 2-6 months.
- Visits to Scotland enable nominated scholars from other European countries outside the UK to carry out research or study in Scotland for similar periods.
This call is currently closed for 2019. The RSE is currently undertaking a review of its Research Awards Programme and announcements on future funding opportunities are planned for Spring 2020.
Grants of up to £6,000 are available for visits of up to six months, at a rate of £1,000 per month to contribute towards the cost of travel, subsistence, and relevant study costs.
Visits may be between two and six months and, in appropriate cases, planned breaks of study may be permitted.
