The British Institute of Persian Studies is currently inviting applications for grants to assist scholars wishing to pursue research in all fields of Persian/Iranian and wider Persian studies. These are at postgraduate level and include anthropology, archaeology, art, history, linguistics, literature, philosophy, religion, political science and cognate subjects.

Following British Academy guidelines, most of BIPS' research income is set aside for collaborative research projects. BIPS is currently seeking to attract applications from scholars in three ‘umbrella' programmes:

1) Ancient Iran: (Programme Director: Professor Eberhard Sauer, University of Edinburgh:

2) Empire and Authority in the Persianate World (Programme Director: Professor Charles Melville, University of Cambridge:

3) History Myth and Literature in Modern Iran (Programme Director: Dr Lloyd Ridgeon, University of Glasgow:
