The Society’s grants programme

The Printing Historical Society operates a programme of awards for work including:

Grants are limited to supporting historical research in printing technology, the printing and related industries, printed materials and artefacts, type and typefounding, print culture, and the history of printing processes and design. Applications for research funding may be for up to £1,000; applications for publishable reports on archives, up to £500. In both cases grants may be used to cover material or other expenses, including travel, accommodation, photography etc., but excluding basic subsistence expenses such as food. Training and employment (such as research assistance or salary replacement) costs will not be eligible for funding.

Applications will be assessed on the viability of the project, the effectiveness of the proposed use of funding and the relevance of the proposed research to the aims of the Society. Applications should specify the amount requested and offer a budget for the envisaged use of the funds; applications for projects that are deemed to be primarily bibliographical, or for conference funding, are unlikely to be successful. Students, academics and independent researchers may apply; some preference will be given to independent researchers. All applicants are strongly encouraged to consider submitting the outcome of their research for publication in the Journal of the Printing Historical Society.

An announcement is generally made in Printing History News, but the Society also advertises its grants programme through a variety of public channels, including on this page of the Society’s website.
