The CILIP Information Literacy Group logoCILIP Information Literacy Group offers up to £20,000 to fund high quality research through an annual bursary scheme. Bids of up to a £10,000 maximum are invited.


This funding is to support practitioners (who are ILG members) to support well-framed research.

Methodological strategies can be either qualitative or quantitative, or both. Approaches can range from small-scale action research to larger scale quantitative studies (or a mixture of the two).

We are seeking imaginative proposals that have the potential for high impact beyond HE and librarianship.

More details of the ILG Research Bursaries can be found at:

If you have further queries about our bursaries, please contact: Dr Geoff Walton.

Deadline for bids:  1st December 2015

Successful candidates will be notified during  January 2016.

It is envisaged that projects will start in March 2016.
