Arts and humanities research council (AHRC)
http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC, formerly AHRB) was established in 1998 with the aim of providing funding and support in the arts and humanities. It focuses on three main areas: advanced research; postgraduate research and training; and special funding for museums, libraries and galleries. Distributing over seventy-five million pounds, the AHRC works in conjunction with other research councils, and promotes collaboration with European institutions. The AHRC's mission is to improve the understanding of human culture, to support the development of highly qualified researchers, to promote excellence in research, and to support the dissemination of the results in the arts and humanities. The AHRC provides detailed and comprehensive information on its website about applications for awards, and has highlighted a number of case studies for guidance. The site offers information about the Board, its mission and funding policy, a glossary of terms, and a list of other funding bodies. A News, Events and Media section offers the latest information on events and developments in the AHRC.
