Small Grants

PESGB Small Grants

PESGB Small Grants are intended to support individuals in the pursuit of research and other activities that further the development of philosophy of education. Small Grants are offered to a maximum of £750.

Applications are accepted from any member of the Society who has been a member for at least a year. It is incumbent on members to check that their subscription fees are up-to-date before applying. Please check with if you are unsure.

Members are eligible to apply for funds once every 24 months. The amount of funding available each year is determined by PESGB’s Finance & General Purposes Committee and will be limited by demand.

Applicants will be expected to seek funding for the activity in question from their employing institution (where relevant) in the first instance. If the funds are sought for organising an event, organising a Branch Seminar (or approaching a Branch Secretary with your proposed event) may be a more suitable option.

Applications for Small Grants can be made up six months prior to a proposed event or activity and will be dealt with in a timely manner by a member of the Finance and General Purposes Committee, a sub-committee of the Executive Committee of the Society.

Information on making a Small Grant application is available here.
