Created on: 06 Dec 2023 | Last modified: 09 May 2024

Applications are now open for a revised 2-year scheme of Action Research Grants, taking place across 2024-26.


Building on the success of the Action Research Grants scheme since 2017, from next year EIS members can access a revised and improved programme of supported action research for professional learning. Including grant funding, academic guidance, research skills training and more, EIS researchers will undertake a 2-year project based on their own research interests.


Up to £500 will be avialable for each project per year, with researchers developing comprehensive project plans and dissemination activities across the 2-year project cycle.
