Applicants must be either graduates of a university in the United Kingdom with an honours degree (or postgraduate degree) in history, or a related subject; or British citizens with a similar qualification from a university outside the United Kingdom. Awards are not available to those registered for undergraduate or postgraduate courses or degrees.
Applicants may only apply for one Scouloudi Historical Award per year (either for Publication or Research, and regardless of whether the applications relate to different projects).
Applications will be considered only in those cases where the applicant’s manuscript or electronic text has been provisionally accepted for publication by a reputable publisher, publishing house, web site or digital library subject to the provision of a subsidy. Applications will be accepted from editors of learned journals or e-journals seeking subvention of individual issues of their journals. Such applications should be made in the name of the editor and should include a list of contributors to the issue for which support is requested.
