Events and initiatives funding OPEN

Events and initiatives funding competition

CRASSH offers support for a wide range of events, workshops, and creative initiatives. We invite you to apply for funding and logistical support for any activity that will foster the exchange of ideas across disciplines and cultures, forge new collaborations between researchers and other participants, bring academic research to wider publics, or explore the connections between research and artistic practice.


Fellowships OPEN

Visiting Fellowships 2023 – 2024 OPEN

Visiting Fellowships are designed to support the Centre’s research interests, projects, and activities. Depending on the fellowship, Fellows are usually given desk space in the Centre as well as certain practical assistance in their research. CRASSH can assist in arranging accommodation in a College and enable access to the University Library and other departmental libraries. CRASSH may also support visitors who come to Cambridge for a period of days or weeks to participate in a particular activity organised by the Centre. If you have your own funding in place you should apply to the Centre well in advance of your intended visit.


Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships 2024 OPEN

Applicants wishing to hold a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship in CRASSH should be seeking to pursue projects that are interdisciplinary and/or particularly innovative in their approach to methods and outcomes, and which may therefore fit better at CRASSH than elsewhere in Cambridge. We typically receive a large number of applications at CRASSH, and applicants should justify their choice of host department very clearly.
