The RHS is committed to providing small grants for research postgraduates and early career historians. We award a number of these small grants annually as well as two generous bursaries, the Marshall and Centenary Fellowships, to enable doctoral candidates of high scholarly distinction to complete their doctorates. Our research grants are open to history research postgraduates whether they are members of the RHS or not, but applicants are welcome to apply for postgraduate membership and its many benefits. Grant applications are assessed and awarded by the RHS Research Support Committee comprised of professional historians on the RHS Council.
