International Collaboration Funding Scheme

The SLSA invites submissions for this new scheme aimed at supporting SLSA members to undertake international collaborative activities that are specifically aimed at building connections with socio-legal scholars and socio-legal communities beyond the UK.

See our impact and international collaboration grantholders roll of honour for details of past winners. 

The funding can be used to initiate and build new connections as well as strengthen existing relationships with socio-legal scholars or socio-legal communities beyond the UK in order to lay the groundwork for, and develop, new collaborative research initiatives or capacity-building activities.

The total fund for the first year of this scheme (2023–2024) is £5000 and awards will be made to a maximum of £1000 only. The total fund will be allocated as follows:

  • £2000, provided by a generous donation from Social & Legal Studies, is reserved for funding international collaborative activities specifically aimed at involving socio-legal scholars or socio-legal communities located in the Global South
  • £3000 is open to fund any international collaborative activities whether the focus is on the Global North, Global South, or both.


Applicants must be members of the Socio-Legal Studies Association. All applications are required to have a lead applicant being an SLSA member based at an institution in the UK, and be made in partnership with at least one ‘international partner’, eg an individual academic from an institution outside the UK, or an organisation outside the UK.

Applications must be made through the standard form provided below. Applications must be accompanied by a letter from an authorised person within the lead applicant’s home institution undertaking to administer any award in accordance with that institution’s approved financial procedures. Applicants must also include a letter of support from the international partner’s institution/international partner organisation.
