The Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB) has changed its title to Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). AHRC no longer offers bursaries for writers to work within higher education institutionson a regional basis, therefore Literature Wales is unable to offer bursaries in partnership with AHRC. All applications for AHRC bursaries will be processed centrally by AHRC. Applications should be sent directly to the Research Division at the AHRC:
Arts and Humanities Research Council, Whitefriars, Lewis Mead, Bristol, BS1 2AE.
Tel: 0117 987 6500. Fax: 0117 987 6544.
