Regional Conference Grant Scheme

The Regional Conference Grant Scheme aims to support the study of modern languages outside London, to promote inter-institutional collaborations, and bring together scholars from the wider region as participants or attendees.

Applicants can apply for a maximum of £2,500, with up to three grants awarded each year.

The call for applications for the 2018 competition is now closed. The next call for applications will be in November 2018, for events to be held between 1 September 2019 and 30 June 2020.
