RHS Postgraduate Research Support Grants
« on: Dec 07, 2009, 10:58 PM »
The Royal Historical Society is committed to supporting postgraduate students. All postgraduate students registered at doctoral research level at a UK university are eligible to apply for Membership of the Society, which provides access to the full range of the Society's activities.

We also offer a number of research grants for those undertaking postgraduate research, whether they are Members of the Society or not. Funds are available to subsidise attendance at conferences and training courses, and to help defray the costs of archival visits. In addition, bursaries are available to help those organising conferences to provide subsidised rates for postgraduate attendees.

We also offer the Martin Lynn Scholarship to assist an historian pursuing postgraduate research on a topic in African history and the Marshall and Centenary Fellowships to assist those writing up dissertations. The Rees Davies graduate essay prize is open to any graduate student who has benefited from the Society's research support scheme.

Royal Historical Society awards are intended principally for postgraduate students registered for a research degree at United Kingdom institutions of higher education (full-time and part-time); the Society will also consider applications from individuals who have completed doctoral dissertations within the last two years and are not yet in full-time employment.

Grants of between £75 - £500 are offered under four schemes

i) for individual travel to conferences
ii) for research expenses within the United Kingdom
iii) for research expenses outside the United Kingdom
iv) for organisers of workshops and conferences to encourage the participation of junior researchers

The average grant is for a sum of £250, and priority will be given to new applicants. All applicants, however, are expected to seek funding from their own institutions in the first instance. Please note that grants cannot be sought retrospectively.
