Large Grants

The Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain promotes the study, teaching and application of philosophy of education. Our annual Large Grants Scheme is designed to support activities that further these aims and comprises three categories:

  • Doctoral Studentships
  • Seminar Series Grants
  • Miscellaneous Grants

We are proud to partner in the British Academy Special Funds

2020/21 Funding Schemes Now Closed

Applications for the 2020/21 Large Grant Schemes closed on 9th March. We expect to announce results around May 2021.

British Academy Special Funds

The British Academy has a number of special funds, from which grants are made for particular and restricted purposes. The majority of these funds are administered through the BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants scheme

NB – our collaboration seeks to support projects that are primarily philosophical and that do not comprise empirical research.

Doctoral Studentships 

Doctoral Scholarships contribute towards tuition fees for full-time or part-time students pursuing doctorates in the philosophy of education, normally at UK universities. The society will normally distribute up to £20,000 in total for doctoral support in one year.

Seminar Series Grant and Miscellaneous Grant 

The Seminar Series Grant offers support of up to £10,000 for the organisation of seminar series in the philosophy of education.

The Miscellaneous Grant offers support of up to £3,000 to support one off seminars, seed corn research meetings, and other qualifying initiatives.
