The British Institute of Persian Studies is a self-governing charity bringing together distinguished scholars of, and people with an interest in, Iranian and Persianate studies.

Our grants scheme offers assistance to researchers working on our three broad Research Programmes, and our full programme of events aims to share research outcomes but also to encourage public interest in Iranian / Persianate Studies. We have an extensive library and study centre in Tehran to assist both local and international researchers, and can offer accommodation to visiting scholars and students.
