The rapidly changing environment in higher education means that there is more emphasis than ever on the need to apply for research grants. The result has been increased competition during a period when government funders and universities tighten spending on large grants and research leave. These challenges face academics at all career stages, though mid-career historians are particularly affected owing to the competing expectations of departmental administration, leadership, and publishing research outputs, along with controversial moves by some universities to benchmark research income to job grade.

The workshop is for historians at all career stages, but primarily aimed at mid-career scholars, interested in making successful research grant applications. There will be a series of presentations by representatives of the major funding bodies, funding specialists, successful applicants, and historians with experience of peer review, which will survey the landscape of higher education funding for History practitioners.
