British Academy Rising Star Engagement Awards:
Call for Proposals

Continuing the British Academy’s long and significant support for Early Career Researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences, we are pleased to announce that we are now inviting applications to the British Academy Rising Star Engagement Awards (BARSEAs) 2016 – a programme of funding designed to extend our existing level of support to a broader cohort of early career scholars.
BARSEAs are intended to enable established early career scholars to become actively engaged in the work of the British Academy and to enhance their own skills and career development through the organisation of events, training, and mentoring activities for a wide range of other early career researchers. This scheme is not an offer to enable a scholar to undertake research.
Applications are invited from early career scholars within 10 years of the award of their doctorate, and ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom. In order to be eligible for this programme, candidates must also be able to demonstrate their academic credentials as leaders in research through suitable marks of esteem awarded prior to the submission of the application.
Applications must be submitted via the e-GAP system. You will need to register and access details by following the link to ‘funding schemes’ from the personal welcome page. Then click ‘Apply Now’ on the Rising Star Engagement Awards 2016 link.
Level of Award: up to £15,000.
Application submission deadline: 14 October 2016 at 5pm (UK time).
Results expected: late February 2016.
Earliest start date for the award: 1 March 2016.
Latest start date for the award: 31 March 2016.
For further information regarding the award, including a full list of eligibility criteria, please consult the award’s Scheme Notes, available on e-GAP. All enquiries related to this scheme should be made to

MA Bursaries – Reconciliation and Peacebuilding
University of Winchester UK

The University of Winchester through the ‘Centre of Religions for Reconciliation and Peace’ (CRRP) has available up to 4 full fee bursaries for study on its postgraduate programmes MA Reconciliation and MA Reconciliation and Peacebuilding for September 2015/16.

Three fee bursaries (up to £11,900) are available for overseas students currently living in conflict affected regions, or post-conflict countries, to study full or part-time on the distance learning MA Reconciliation and Peacebuilding. Applicants will be assessed based on academic suitability; supporting evidence of the need for financial support; and subject to passing the standard application process.

The University of Winchester also has one full-time, full fees and partial living allowance bursary for a UK resident to study the MA Reconciliation or MA Reconciliation and Peacebuilding – total amount £10,000; £5900 fee bursary, £4,100 cash contribution to help cover student living costs.

Both courses are delivered either predominantly (for the MA Reconciliation) or exclusively (MA R&P) via distance learning and therefore there is no need for the student to relocate to Winchester.

Please share this offer with your friends and colleagues.

In peace,

Professor Brian Walker MBE
