The Prix de la Délégation générale du Québec à Londres is an annual award of £1,500, generously offered for many years by the Government of Québec and administered by BACS. It is designed to assist independent researchers, faculty and students, who are permanent UK residents, to carry out research projects related to Québec. The award must be used primarily for the purpose of a research trip to Québec and related expenses.


Projects that incorporate Québec in a comparative approach (at least 50% of the focus must be on Québec) are also eligible. The projects submitted should ideally have a contemporary resonance. All applications are welcome, including those from applicants unsuccessful in previous competitions. The awards are open to researchers and academic staff (including postdoctoral researchers) and to students, including doctoral and master’s students and BA (MA in Scotland) or BSc students in their final year of studies.


These awards will be paid on presentation of the relevant receipts, and thus are not intended to be used to cover tuition fees or similar expenses. Applicants are expected to be members of BACS (they may join at time of application) but need not have an institutional affiliation.


Deadline for Prix research projects: Thursday 6 April 2023 at 5.00pm (UK time)
