Funding and Jobs

CBRL Funding of Research

CBRL offers funded fellowships, project awards and travel grants. CBRL also offers unfunded honorary fellowships and project affiliations. CBRL job opportunities, when available, are also advertised in this section. Our funding round is now closed, we will announce new funding opportunities in October 2020.

How to Apply

CBRL maintains a broad and highly active engagement in research, but the bulk of funding for this research comes from such sources as the British Academy, the AHRC, the ESRC and other bodies such as the Leverhulme Trust. Only a small proportion will be directly funded by CBRL. By carefully targeting our resources we believe we are able to make a significant impact. The CBRL provides funding to research projects awards made available from the funds it receives from the British Academy through its grant-in-aid. A vital part of our work is to support British universities, however CBRL's research funding also employs research-active staff to manage its facilities, conduct their own research and support other research. CBRL also provides unfunded institutional support to projects through affiliations and to individuals through Honorary Fellowships.
