Research for Action Accelerator Grants

Call for proposals now open

The Skoll Centre’s Research for Action Accelerator Grants programme is now open. Our grants support Early Career Researchers at the University of Oxford to explore new social entrepreneurship-related research ideas, or to extend the impact of their existing research.

This year, three grants of up to £12,000 are available for academic projects that actively contribute to the Skoll Centre’s mission: ‘to accelerate the impact of entrepreneuring activity that aims to transform unjust or unsatisfactory systems and practices’. Funds can either support ‘first steps’ into new research areas or ‘last mile’ projects boosting the impact of completed research work. 

To apply, please submit the following:

  1. A brief cover letter
  2. A completed application form
  3. An up-to-date CV for all applicants

Closing date: Friday 21 April

See the 2017 Call for Proposals below for full details.
