Wellcome Trust (WT): Inviting applications for ‘Collaborative Awards in Humanities and Social Science’ to promote the development of new ideas and bring disciplines together to speed the pace of discovery.

Funding brief: Collaborative Awards promote the development of new ideas and bring disciplines together to speed the pace of discovery. This scheme funds teams who are tackling major health-related questions in the humanities and social sciences that require a collaborative approach.

They’re looking for teams to tackle research questions that can only be approached collaboratively. Teams can come from the same discipline or from a combination of disciplines. They can be from the same university department or a number of organizations (anywhere in the world).

Important factors when we evaluate your application are:
● The environment in which you do your research
● The support your host organization provides
● The time you’ll spend on the Collaborative Award, and how it fits in with your other academic commitments
● Evidence that the team has the relevant expertise for the proposed research and will work together well, eg you’ve collaborated with each other before, or been involved in similar teams

A Collaborative Award is normally in the range of £1 million to £1.5 million, for up to five years. You should ask for a level and duration of funding that’s justifiable for your career stage, research experience and the proposed research programme. Support includes:
● Research expenses, including research assistance or PhDs
● Research/teaching replacement
● Conference and meeting costs
