Apply for funding support from SKP

The Sheila Kitzinger Programme is open to applications for support and funding (up to £2500) for projects led by academics and practitioners inside and outside Green Templeton College, on medical, legal and social issues broadly related to the work and interests of Sheila Kitzinger.

Projects intended to benefit refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, and projects which take creative and/or collaborative approaches to complex problems affecting vulnerable people more generally, are especially welcome.

Previously supported projects have included:

  • Transdisciplinary workshops or day seminars bringing together researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders
  • The creation of networks or working groups
  • Reading and discussion groups
  • The production (or work towards production) of research-based educational material, including plays and short films

Events supported by the programme will normally be held at Green Templeton College in Oxford or online. Rooms at Green Templeton, where available, will be provided free of charge.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the programme’s capacity for the academic year is reached. They will be considered by the Steering Group, which meets three times a year, based on:

  • A likely positive outcome directly or indirectly benefiting vulnerable people, in line with the values championed by Sheila and Uwe Kitzinger
  • The project’s fit with the values, priorities and facilities of Green Templeton College
  • The clarity and practicality of the proposal
  • The specific expertise or experience of the lead applicant(s) only insofar as this qualifies them to lead the proposed project

To discuss your ideas please contact the Chair, Professor Aileen Clarke, or for administrative questions the Green Templeton College Academic Projects team.
