History and social movements' is intended to support small scale projects for the preservation and dissemination of historical knowledge and/or alternative historical sources, such as visual and audio material.
It is important that these initiatives are well-connected to local intellectual communities and social movements and that their results will be accessible to a wide audience.
In addition, an indication of the relevance of the grants for institutional capacity building and local or national policy making is desired.
Research proposals will be selected by the Sephis Steering Committee, which consists of historians from different regions in the world.
The applications will be evaluated according to academic quality, feasibility, relevance to local intellectual communities and social movements and relevance to Sephis themes.
Applications should be written in English.
Incomplete applications, applications by fax or e-mail and applications which exceed the stated length cannot be considered.
