Prizes and Bursaries for History

The Worshipful Company of Curriers, one of the livery companies of the City of London, has established an essay prize on the history of London, in association with The London Journal Trust and the Institute of Historical Research. The author of the winning submission will receive £1,000 and the essay will normally be published in The London Journal. Essays must fall within the scope of The London Journal. They may be on any aspect of the history of London, from the Romans to the present day, reflect any relevant approach or disciplinary perspective, and can consider London alone or in comparison with other cities. Essays must be based on original research, and should not have been previously published.

The aim of the bursaries is to enable students to undertake research at the IHR and at other London-based archives. All successful applicants will be expected to use the IHR as a base when in London and to participate in its activities. This means, for example, regular use of the IHR library and attendance at IHR seminars and conferences. It could also mean interaction with one or more of the IHR's research centres, and if appropriate, taking a research training course. All successful applicants will be encouraged to make contact with the History Lab, the Institute's postgraduate network. Bursaries will normally be for travel, accommodation and/or research expenses.
