IHR Bursaries (IHR Friends, Alwyn Ruddock, David Bates)

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.
