The AL Charitable Trust is a 30-year-old foundation with broad educational aims to assist PhD students in the social sciences, especially sociology. Through providing small grants it helps students complete parts of their research that they might otherwise be unable to fund. The Trust expects funded projects to take a gender perspective. The Trust also aims to promote new generations of researchers addressing important social questions of our times. A limited number of small grants of up to £1,000 are available each year.
