Aims of the INSBS Grant Programmes

The INSBS grant programmes seek to promote the growth of the social study of science and religion globally, by supporting the ongoing development of an international network of active academic researchers.

Overview of Grants Available

The 2023-2024 grants programme will fund projects up to £20,000, for a duration of 12 months, between the dates of March 1, 2023–June 30, 2024.  Researchers at any career stage who work on the social study of science and religion in society are welcome to apply for this programme by October 31, 2022.

Small Research Grants

This programme will fund stand-alone research projects on any aspect of the study of science and belief in society. We will consider applications from disciplines including psychology, sociology, history, science and technology studies, and related fields.

Network Grants

This programme is aimed at supporting the development of local and regional research networks. Grants will be given for events and networking activities, especially in areas where the field is less developed, which share the aims of the overall network and can evidence a contribution to development of the field at a national or regional level.

Please note: researchers may only be lead applicant on one application, but may apply as co-investigator on multiple applications. If you do not have an institutional affiliation, please contact us for further guidance in advance of submitting your application. We welcome applications from academic researchers based in any country worldwide.
