The RSA Fellowship Research Grants (FeRSA) are provided to support a discrete piece of regional studies and/or regional science research. The value of the award is up to £7,500 (c. $10,000; c. €8,900). The award has a maximum time span of 18 months and reporting conditions apply. The full terms, application guidelines and conditions governing the grant are available in the FeRSA Handbook.
This award is open to Fellows of the RSA only. The FeRSA was introduced to support the research of established researchers and long-term RSA members. RSA Fellows are individual members who have been continuous members for a minimum of 5 years and who have also been defined as ‘active members’. This means that they have contributed to the life of the Association through serving on the Board or committees, have spoken at conferences, have applied for grants and other forms of funding etc. Please email the membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org to check your eligibility for this category of membership.
