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. These grants programmes are designed to stimulate new avenues of individual or collaborative research internationally, and may include research including but not limited to:

1. Small scale quantitative or qualitative research data collection projects
(for which we anticipate it may be necessary to collect data largely online due to the current COVID-19 pandemic)
2. Individual or collaborative pilot or trial projects in order to develop ideas for future larger funding
3. Secondary data analysis or desk-based research
4. Write up of data or research for publication

Priority for small research grants will be given to those who are seeking to grow their international research collaborations through this grant scheme. However, this is not an essential requirement of projects proposed within this grant scheme. We welcome applications from academic researchers based in any country worldwide.
