Funding and Jobs

CBRL Funding of Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences

CBRL offers funded fellowships, project awards, travel grants and opportunities for Arabic language training. CBRL also offers unfunded honorary fellowships and project affiliations. CBRL internships are offered at our two institutes in the region.

CBRL maintains a broad and active engagement in research on the Levant, but the bulk of funding for this research comes from such sources as the British Academy, the AHRC, the ESRC, and other bodies such as the Leverhulme Trust. Only a small proportion will be directly funded by CBRL. By carefully targeting our resources we believe we are able to make a significant impact. The CBRL provides funding to research projects awards made available from the funds it receives from the British Academy through its grant-in-aid. A vital part of our work is to support British universities, however CBRL's research funding also employs research-active staff to manage its facilities, conduct their own research and support other research. CBRL also provides unfunded institutional support to projects through affiliations and to individuals through Honorary Fellowships.
