We understand how important it is to support early career researchers to enable them to develop their work and build global links. We offer travel and research grants for UK affiliated and Iranian post-doctorate academics. 

Travel Grants

As part of the UK-Iran Researcher Links workshop series, the British Council provides travel grants for early career post doctorate researchers in a variety of fields. The first of these grants were launched in June 2016 in partnership with University College London. They provide financial support to Iranian Global Health researchers who will work at UCL research institutions in Bangladesh and Cambodia for two weeks before writing a report.
