The LIDC Fellowship Scheme was launched in 2013. It aims to support new collaborative research projects in international development between academics from at least two different Bloomsbury Colleges – LIDC members (Birkbeck, Institute of Education, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, SOAS and Royal Veterinary College).

Grants of up to £5,000 per project are available to support innovative ideas for international development research that are inter-sectoral (e.g. between education and health, agriculture and environment, etc.) and/ or interdisciplinary (e.g. between political science and anthropology, economics and epidemiology, etc.). The Fellowships are intended as seed funding to help collaborators across Colleges to develop new research areas. Read more about the Scheme and projects funded in 2013
