How to make yourself fundable
Tuesday 29th March 2022 from 2-5pm via Zoom
Dr Sally Baggott works in the HE sector as a freelance research funding consultant. Drawing on her extensive experience in developing applications for research funding, this session will focus on giving a fundable account of yourself and other critical issues in applying for Early Career Researcher (ECR) funding. The session will cover everything you need to know from conceiving a new project, to shaping and writing the proposal. Sally will cover the details of ECR funding schemes and share examples of previously successful applications for discussion.
Specialising in the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences and with over 10 years’ experience, I have a proven track record of research support across the range of disciplines, working with small and specialist institutions, post-1992 and Russell Group universities. I have supported a great many successful applications to a majority of UK funders, from the British Academy Small Research Grants scheme to the fellowships and large-scale, collaborative awards offered by AHRC, ESRC, the Leverhulme Trust, the European Research Council and the European Commission.
This session is targeted towards students in the 3rd year (or part-time equivalent) of their PhD studies. 2nd year PhD students can still apply, however 3rd year students will be prioritised for places if the session is overbooked.
The deadline for booking a place will be Friday 25th March at 12pm. Places will be confirmed with participants after the deadline.
