How does it work?
The RSA Early Career Awards are provided to support a discrete piece of regional studies and/or regional science research. The value of the award is up to £10,000 (or its equivalent in dollars or Euros depending upon the agreed exchange rate at the time of the award). The award has a maximum time span of 18 months and reporting conditions apply. Only one award will be made to any successful applicant.
There will be four grants each up to £10,000 available in the 2014 round.
Candidates should ensure that their application:
Is ambitious in their scope and have a clear international impact;
Includes the full research specification within the main application document instead of an attached document;
Includes a CV that lists only the top 5 relevant publications to the research proposal;
Includes a copy of the PhD certificate showing the date of the award;
Excludes the mentor letter;
Asks why the RSA should fund the research and how the research fits within the Association’s themes of development.
Submission deadline: 8th September 2014, 10am GMT
