Thematic Research Grants at British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA) 2018/2019


Every year the British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA) invites applications for our small Thematic Research Grants. These funds are usually dispersed through two calls for applications per year, usually released in June/July and December.

Course Level: Grants

Eligible Countries: UK or Eastern African countries.

The British Institute in Eastern Africa invites applications for funding for research projects that engage with one or more of the following thematic areas:

  1. Citizens and Science in Eastern Africa
  2. Migrations and Mobilities
  3. Everyday States
  4. Land, Heritage ad Memory
  5. Spending Time

Eligibility Criteria:

  • BIEA research funding is available to support original research within these thematic areas in any discipline in the humanities and social sciences across the region.
  • The BIEA’s thematic grant scheme particularly seeks to help researchers who have limited access to other sources of funds. In doing so, the BIEA seeks to nurture early career researchers and scholars in eastern Africa, and is keen to fund small projects that lay the ground for larger projects.  Such researchers may include postgraduate students in eastern African or the UK, or people who have not followed conventional research careers but whose local knowledge or contacts make them well-fitted to conduct quality research.
  • This funding supports original research in the humanities and social sciences, and we particularly encourage applications from the wider eastern African region, which we define as stretching from Sudan, to Mozambique, and including Madagascar. ‘
  • Priority is given to researchers based in the UK or eastern Africa.

Number of Awards: Limited

Value of Award: Grants are normally between £500 and £1,000; in exceptional circumstances, up to £1,500 may be awarded. The grant should contribute towards actual research costs and not include institutional overheads, equipment, and applicant’s stipend or publication costs.
