The SMKE Scholarship scheme will provide funding of up to £1,000 for ten knowledge exchange projects to run in academic year 2012-3. SMKE Scholars must be postgraduate students or early career researchers in the Arts and Humanities in any of the five participating institutions.
The AHRC Social Media Knowledge Exchange (SMKE) is a collaborative project that aims to give early career researchers in the Arts and Humanities opportunities for knowledge exchange with social media practitioners in academia, museums, archives, libraries, and the voluntary sector.
