Call for Proposals

Postponed SRG & PhD Funding Calls

Sixth SRG Call & Fifth PhD Call


We have very recently been made aware of uncertainties about the STEG budget as a result of potential reductions in the budget of FCDO (UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, our funder). We are therefore putting the next few funding calls on hold whilst we establish the available budget. This includes the sixth call for proposals for Small Research Grants and fifth call for proposals for PhD Research Grants, which recently opened on 23 November. We hope to reopen the calls, and continue with future SRG and LRG funding once we have more certainty over STEG's future budget.

We appreciate the time and effort made by those who have already prepared and submitted applications, and apologise that we are unable to complete the review process on the original timeline. Applications already received will be considered if and when the calls reopen.

Please note that we do not expect funding for open STEG grants to be affected.
