We are happy to announce the 2009 Al Trust small grant competition for Research Students. The Trust is a twenty-eight year old foundation with broad educational aims. A limited number of small grants of up to £1,000 are available this year. The priority of the Trust this year is children in Britain. We call for applications that address this issue either through focused research on children, families and communities in Britain or in comparative perspective. We encourage research proposals that consider gender as dimensions of these problems.
Grants will not be given for course fees or conferences and the Trust is limited to supporting the work of doctoral candidates in UK universities. FIRM CLOSING DATE for applications: 25 September 2009
