The SLSA runs the following funding schemes:
- Research Training Grants – a capacity-building scheme to support training in social science research methods and the use of data analysis software. This scheme has three annual closing dates.
- Seminar Competition – to support the delivery of either an individual seminar or short conference, or a series of events. The closing date for this scheme is in December each year.
- Mentoring Awards – a capacity-building scheme to support SLSA members who wish to visit and work with a chosen socio-legal mentor. This scheme is suspended pending a review.
