Funding Opportunities

The Independent Social Research Foundation wishes to support independent-minded researchers to explore and present original research ideas which take new approaches, and suggest new solutions, to real world social problems.

ISRF funding is awarded competitively through a series of Grant Competitions – individual Fellowships and flexible, small group awards.

Award recipients are invited to present their work at ISRF Congress events, to participate in ISRF Conferences, and to contribute articles to the ISRF Bulletin.

Existing or previous ISRF Fellows may apply to the ISRF Dissemination Fund for a grant of up to £500 towards the cost of, for example, holding an event at which a book (or a book to which they have contributed significantly) is launched.

The ISRF also hosts its own regular Book Launch events, celebrating the published work of ISRF Fellows past and present.
