Research & Project Grants

The Society invites applications for its Research and Study Grant Programme 2018.  Application-form-Philsoc-Research-Grant-2018


Grants will be available to support a broad range of research and study activities in the arts, humanities, sciences and other disciplines. All aspects of the costs of research and study will be considered including travel, research networking, publication or dissemination of results, course or conference fees, pump priming for more major research projects, education, training, teaching, outreach to raise awareness in young people and the public in general or otherwise promote public engagement.


The Society joined with the Trades House in awarding prizes in The Glasgow Modern Apprentice Awards 2017. In a surprise announcement two new awards were introduced: ‘Community Engagement’ and ‘Overcoming Difficulties’ sponsored by the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow.
