ESRC Festival of Social Science

Festival banner

The ESRC Festival of Social Science 2014 was a huge success with over 200 events across the UK. This year the Festival will be taking place from 7-14 November 2015.

The call for applications is now closed. 

Applicants will be informed by 26 June if they have been successful or not. Please note: as we continue to move towards a partnership model for the Festival, the number of events we are able to fund this year will be lower than in previous years.

Please email if you would like any additional information.
