Applications open till 25th March for the 2022 STR Research Grants

27 January 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. Find out more below!

Is there an element within your research topics that deals with an aspect of the British theatre which would make it eligible? Topics we can consider include buildings, people, historical or contemporary concerns, theories and practices, and all kinds of performance arts.

We 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 our 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 our reports on the Covid-19 Support Grants 2020 and Practitioner Grants 2021 on our website.
