This year's Festival of Social Science will take place from 4-11 November 2017. The call for applications is now live.

Continuing on from previous years, we are working in partnership with universities across the country to produce local festivals. Please check if your university is one of our partners, as you will need to apply via the named contact for funding and not via the online form below.

  • run by or featuring Early Career researchers 
  • from first-time organisers
  • that are aimed at specialist interest audiences
  • that encourage participation from children or young people.
