The British Academy at Ankara Research Turkish and Black Sea Scholars’ Fund grants are awarded to researchers wishing to travel to the UK to visit a recognised UK Higher Education Institution and further their research interests (e.g. studying a museum collection, using a university library and/or presenting papers at conferences/workshops). Grants are also awarded to researchers intending to travel to the Institute’s premises in Ankara to further their research interests by using the collections held at the BIAA’s centre for research excellence. This year, four grants of up to £2000 each are being offered.
Grants are available to support scholars of postgraduate status and above from countries bordering the Black Sea. Research should be located within the field of the arts, humanities and the social sciences.
