‘Hub awards’ pathway

‘Hub awards’ pathway

About this pathway

Hub Awards are the largest and most competitive awards made by Being Human. Universities can apply for grants of between £2,000-4,000 under this pathway from funding made available by the festival’s core partners (the School of Advanced Study, University of London, the AHRC and the British Academy).

Hubs are required to commit to support activities by means of additional funding and in-kind support, to at least match the value of the sum awarded.

Festival Hubs funded by these awards offer highly visible concentrations of best practice activity for the festival. They achieve this by providing particularly coherent, imaginative and/or eye-catching programmes of events that raise the festival’s profile nationally as well as regionally. Take a look at our ‘case studies’ section for examples.
