Application for Funding

Research funding for BII projects

The BII is now accepting research proposals for new projects, with grants of up to £3,000 available per project. Research proposals must:

  • include contributions from more than one discipline;
  • have high potential impact;
  • include at least one Balliol graduate student, lecturer, or Fellow as a principal investigator.

We especially welcome research proposals that may be considered radical or speculative in their aims or methodology.

Application process

Applications are reviewed once each term by the Balliol Research Committee, and results are announced within a week of the application deadline. While anyone may participate on a research team (and participation from outside Balliol College is indeed welcome), all projects must be lead by a Balliol member, who must be listed as the lead or co-lead investigator on the project application form.

The deadline for submitting an application in Michaelmas 2017 is 5.00pm on Wednesday of 7th Week (22 November 2017). Please email bii@balliol.ox.ac.uk  with any questions about the application process.

An application form is available for download here.
