ISAISC offers a range of annual grants and scholarships to assist academic work and education on Iran in the areas of the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
- ISAISC Outreach Grants: ISAISC is currently developing an exciting new approach for supporting public engagement projects that promote a greater understanding of Iran’s history, society and culture. As a result, our Outreach Grants will not be available for 2018/2019. Details about the new arrangements will be made available as soon as possible.
- ISAISC Research and Conference Grants: (normally up to £4,000 per grant) are designed to support research and the organisation of academic conferences principally concerned with the lands and peoples of Iran. Eligibility: Applicants should normally have an affiliation with a Higher Education Institution. (Annual Deadline: 1 February)
- ISAISC Pilot Project Grants: (normally up to £8,000) are designed to support a short period of preliminary research – up to one year – that has the potential to grow into a larger-scale, longer-term project supported by a Research Council or other large funding body. Only one project per year is funded by this scheme. Eligibility: Applicants should normally have an affiliation with a Higher Education Institution. (Annual Deadline: 1 February)
- ISAISC-Visiting Iranian Scholarship Scheme enables Iranian scholars and cultural heritage professionals to engage in short-term research, training, and collaborative projects in Australia. Eligibility: Applicants must currently reside in Iran and have adequate English language skills. (Deadline for proposals are 15 February and 15 August every year (2018-2020))
