RHS Launches Two Schemes to Support Early Career Historians

7 May 2020

Each year, the Royal Historical Society aims to support around 200 UK-based early career researchers (of any nationality) with grant awards totalling just over £60,000. COVID-19 is having a major impact on the scholars we would normally fund. Today, the Royal Historical Society is announcing two new schemes to support UK-based early career researchers in History during this time.

  • The first scheme is a partnership with Adam Matthew Digital offering free and full access for 12 months to the publisher’s digital collections of primary sources for 200 early career historians. Find out more here.
  • The second scheme is an emergency COVID-19 Hardship grant fund to offer individual grants of up to £500 to provide some short-term material assistance in the COVID-19 context. Find out more here.
