ISRF Independent Scholar Research Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Social Science

http://www.isrf.org/download/ISF1_Further_Particulars.pdf

ISRF Independent Scholar Research Fellowship
Providing Research Support in Interdisciplinary Social Science

The Independent Social Research Foundation (ISRF) wishes to support 
independent-minded researchers to do interdisciplinary work which is 
unlikely to be funded by existing funding bodies. It is interested in 
original research ideas which take new approaches, and suggest new 
solutions, to real world social problems.

The foundation intends to award on a competitive basis, to candidates of 
sufficient merit, up to two Independent Scholar Fellowship grants to 
support original interdisciplinary research, across the range of the 
social sciences, to be held from a start date no later than the end of 
December 2014.

The award is intended to enable the buy-out from current occupation of an 
independent scholar to pursue his/her research full- or part-time (or for 
support if unwaged) for a period of up to 12 months, and will be 
considered to a maximum of 20,000 per successful applicant. The awards 
are not intended to support newly qualified scholars entering the 
post-doctoral stage. Reasonable childcare or other domestic costs may be 
considered.

An 'Independent Scholar' is understood as someone, whether or not 
currently in employment, who is engaged on intellectual work of a nature 
and standard comparable to that of a professional academic.

Normally applicants will hold a PhD. Other academic or professional 
qualifications may be considered, along with publications usually in 
peer-reviewed academic journals. Monographs, professional journals and the 
popular media may also be considered.

Applicants should consult the Criteria as set out in the Further 
Particulars (see link below) and show that they meet them. Applicants 
should follow the Application procedure and should present their Proposal 
in the format specified there:

Closing date for applications is 4pm on September 13th 2013.
