If you are a researcher and focusing on education, assessment and technology, we have launched brand new research grants to fund 9 to 12-month-long research projects in this field.
British Council Exams Services Research Grants next call for proposals is now open.
The grants aim to contribute to the validation and innovation in testing delivery practice and support researchers around the world to conduct and disseminate the highest quality of research.
For the next round of grants, we are interested in how technological advances are having a significant impact at all stages of the test cycle – from the effects on the lives of the candidate, to how different countries around the world are addressing these advances.
We will be inviting researchers focusing on education, assessment and technology to apply for funding for 9 to 12-month-long research projects in this field. We will be welcoming projects that focus on high-stakes exams which the British Council deliver on behalf of educational organisations and awarding bodies. Areas of interest for 2024 .
More information on the areas of interest and how to apply will be available in January 2024.
Educational institutions and suitably qualified individuals are invited to apply.
We will also encourage applications from test users interested in understanding how tests impact on their institution.
The Principal Investigator must be associated with an educational institution or recognised research organisation, similar in standing to the institutions recognised by UKRI.
Please note that all contracts for research projects issued by the British Council are subject to the laws of England and Wales; this is regardless of the geographic location of applicants and where the research will take place.
Financial support for individual projects will, in principle, be limited to a maximum of £30,000.
