Key dates

Application deadline: Tuesday 31 March 2015 by 17:00 EST

All activities to be undertaken in 2015/16


The call for proposals for the third year of our Bridging Voices programme is open. Five grants, managed by the British Council, are awarded annually to groups of institutions on both sides of the Atlantic. The grants fund the organisation of two academic and policy dialogues over a period of one year – one in the United States and the other in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in Europe.

Through these dialogues, Bridging Voices brings together transatlantic academics and policymakers to share their expertise on topics related to religion and international affairs.

Each grant is worth up to $24,000.


Universities, research centres, NGOs and think tanks which can demonstrate scope in and expertise with policy, governmental or religious issues are eligible to apply. One principal investigator must be from the US and one other must be from the UK. All other partners may be from the US, UK or elsewhere in Europe.

More details can be found in the call for proposals on our website, below.

Details of successful applicants are posted on our website.
