Each year the BSA gives several small grants of up to £5,000 in support of UK activities in aesthetics and the philosophy of art. Past grants have been used to support conferences, workshops and lecture series, as well as the creation of podcasts and videos.

Applications must include a philosophical component. Applicants must be current, paid-up members of the Society. All events applied for must be held in the UK. Deadlines are 1 April (for a decision by mid-May) and 1 October (for a decision by mid-November).

Please read all the information on these pages carefully before applying. Applications that do not conform to our guidelines will be rejected.

Applicants should download our Guidelines document before completing the application form.
