US-UK-India partnerships

The Humanities are included, as are the social sciences:

Trilateral Research in Partnership (TRIP) Awards

The British Council is excited to announce the first trilateral strand of the successful UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) with the launch of the new Trilateral Research in Partnership (TRIP) Awards with the United States.  Ten awards of up to £50,000 (USD $75,000) in funds will be available to support multidisciplinary research projects between UK, US and Indian higher education institutions.

This new UKIERI strand aims to support the increase of mobility of PhD and post-doctoral students in all three countries, and develop sustainable institutional links between the institutions.

Funds are available to support projects of up to two years.  Proposals are welcome across subject areas, including the humanities, social sciences, science and technology, and multidisciplinary research projects.

All proposals will need to include details of additional contributions from the three institutions involved. Proposals must be supported by UK, US and Indian institutions and endorsed by the respective heads of department or equivalent.

The deadline for online submissions of proposals is 13 April 2012 with the aim to notify successful applications by the end of June 2012.
