RHS Workshop Grants

 

RHS Workshop Grants enable historians to come together to pursue projects of shared interest. Projects are broadly defined and may focus not only on academic research but also a wider range of activities. Grants offer £1000 for hosting a day event.

Applications are now invited for the next round of RHS Workshop Grants, with a closing date of 19 January 2024. Further details and how to apply are available here.

RHS Workshops support a wider range of group activities relating to history. These may include: 

  • discussion of an existing research topic or project; 
  • beginning and testing a research idea, leading to a future project; 
  • developing new teaching practices; 
  • piloting work relating to the teaching, research or communication of history;
  • planning and writing a grant application; 
  • undertaking networking and building of academic communities.

Each Workshop receives £1000 from the Royal Historical Society to cover attendance and the costs of a day meeting. 

Each of the Workshops will be supported by the Royal Historical Society, with updates on outcomes reported via the RHS blog and social media.


Applying for a RHS Workshop Grant, 2024

This scheme provides funding of £1000 per Grant to enable historians to undertake activities, broadly defined, to pursue historical research, study and discussion. In this round, the Society will make up to six awards for Workshops held in 2024.

Applicants are welcome to consider hosting Workshops at the Society’s offices at University College London, if desirable.
