Research

Each year the AHRC funds about 700 new research awards and 1,100 postgraduate awards, which total more than £90m.

The arts and humanities play a vital role in the well-being of our economy. With few major corporations or multinational companies supporting research in this area, the funding the AHRC provides is essential if we are, as a nation, to develop our understanding of these creative industries and their significance in today's society.

These pages will give you an insight into the research that we fund, as well as information about its impact. For current funding opportunities, please go to the Funding section.
