Research Funding

Allocation of research funding is central to the Society’s work of supporting historians and historical research.

In 2022 the Society awarded £95,000 in funding to historians through open competitions and a further £30,000 in one-off programmes, generously assisted by partner organisations and donors.

For 2023, the Society is currently developing and extending its funding programmes for historians, within and outside Higher Education, and at at all career stages.

This is a holding page while changes to our programme and application system are finalised.

Our complete range of funding schemes will be announced in early February 2023 in a new Research Funding section of the website.
