Successful Grant Scheme Up and Running for 2023 – Up to £1000 Available

The latest round of our successful Research Workshop Grant Scheme is now open, offering up to £1000 to support research projects that are at an early stage of planning.

The scheme, which is supported by HEFCW, was launched in 2022 since when 15 projects have been supported, with over £14,000 awarded to successful bids.

“The scheme has become an important part of Wales’ research landscape,” said Cathy Stroemer, who runs our Researcher Development Programme.

“Several of the schemes we supported have already used our grant to bid successfully for additional money.

“The scheme demonstrates how the LSW is helping to enhance the research environment in Wales.”

The grants are awarded to research proposals that fall within one of the following three areas:

  • Wales Studies,
  • Early Career Researchers
  • Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences

Money awarded is used to run workshops that bring together researchers from different disciplines and from a range of institutions. The workshops are intended to develop the research idea and, in due course, lead to a bid for additional funding.
