CSEAS Awards, SOAS, University of London

The CSEAS is sometimes in a position to support staff and doctoral students with their research through a small grants scheme. The first round of this scheme was introduced in 2012 to support a research project or part thereof; or to disseminate research at a conference; to finish and publish research; or for seed funding to test out the viability of a larger project.
