Applications open for the 2022 STR Research Grants.

January 26, 2022

The Society for Theatre Research awards research grants every year, with sums ranging from £200 to £1,000 to contribute to the cost of research relating to the history and practice of the British theatre. Is there an element within your research topics that deals with an aspect of the British theatre which would make it eligible? Topics STR can consider include buildings, people, historical or contemporary concerns, theories and practices, and all kinds of performance arts.

STR invite all engaged in theatre research to apply – for example you may be an early career academic needing help with a particular piece of research, or an independent scholar digging up traces of local theatre or performers, or a theatre practitioner engaged in practical research on an aspect of performance practice. See the online reports from past recipients to read all the details of previous grants.

In addition, the Society has funded practice-as-research grants of £200 each during the summers of 2020 and 2021. See the reports on the Covid-19 Support Grants 2020 and Practitioner Grants 2021 on STR website.

For Eligibility, Guidance Notes and contact details for this year’s Research Grants please visit STR website. You can download this year’s application form here.

The deadline for applications is 25th March 2022.

Please share this call-out with your networks, students and fellow researchers.
