CModS Funding for Research Activities

Co-Directors: Emilie Morin (Emilie.Morin@york.ac.uk) and Claire Westall (Claire.Westall@york.ac.uk)

The Centre for Modern Studies provides an open and vibrant forum for academic staff and postgraduate students working in the modern period (1830-present) within and across a wide range of disciplines.

Each academic year CModS offers a number of funding opportunities to help staff and postgraduate students organise research events and activities that fall within the remit of the centre.

As well as the opportunities outlined below, occasionally small amounts of discretionary funding become available and anyone wanting to find out about the possibility of assistance with a budget shortfall for a scheduled event should contact the centre co-directors.

Applications for Funding in 2017-2018

Research Strands

We have a rolling pattern of ‘research strands’ that enable intensive research efforts in a strategic area.

From 2017-2018, one research strand will run for three years, beginning in 2017-2018, receiving £1000 a year to support its activities (that is, £1000 per year for three academic years).

Two further research strands will receive £1000 each for the 2017-2018 academic year to support their activities.

A ‘CModS Research Strand’ is led by an academic member of staff, and can include collaborators who are other members of staff, postgraduate research students and/or postdocs.

Applicants are asked to complete the form below and submit it to Helen Jacobs by 23 May 2017.

Applicants will be emailed the result of their application before the end of the summer term 2017.

Successful applicants will be able to claim against their allowance from the start of the new financial year – which begins on 1st August 2017.

Please see the ‘Research Strands’ tab for more information about how ‘strands’ work and the ‘strands’ we have currently.
