Research funding

UK bodies that offer research funding in LIS. This page was last updated June 2012.

General

Note: The British Library is currently not funding research.

Possibilities for turning research results into impactful actions

  • Esmee Fairbairn Foundation
  • Joseph Rowntree Trusts – Covers social justice which may tie in with LIS research. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation is not a grant-making organisation and generally does not accept speculative enquiries for funding. They issue ‘calls for proposals’ and invite submissions to them.
  • LIRG  Scan award  – £500 to communicate existing research to practitioners
  • Winston Churchill Memorial Trust – Individual travel to make a difference

Nations

Bodies issuing grants aimed at institutions or individuals specifically based in England, Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland
