Doctoral researchers in arts & humanities disciplines at any Scottish HEI are eligible to apply, regardless of their funding source.
Would you like to be able to explore & work with some of Scotland’s unique university holdings of archives & special collections? Scotland’s universities have a rich & diverse resource of special research collections. Museums, rare books & archives: collections recognised as being of national importance & world significance.
SURCAS is a new scheme which supports doctoral researchers in the arts & humanities to undertake short-term research/knowledge exchange projects with collections & to produce a public engagement outcome. This can take the form of an online exhibition; talks; short films; apps; performances; creative practice; or whatever the researcher agrees with the collections service. In this pilot year, we are focusing on archives & special collections. SGSAH will provide funding to support you to undertake a project culminating in public engagement activity, including training, travel & accommodation & support for public engagement activity.
DEADLINE: 5pm Wednesday 24 August 2016
