Prizes and Bursaries for History
The purpose of a Scouloudi publication award is to subsidise a portion of the cost of publishing a scholarly book or article, or an issue of a learned journal in the field of history, either in hard copy or through electronic publication. Please note that we also offer separate Scouloudi research awards, which are intended to cover relevant research expenses. Publication awards and research awards have separate application forms; please ensure that you are completing the correct one. If you are in any doubt as to which of the two funds you should apply to, please contact IHR.Fellowships@sas.ac.uk. Applicants should not ask for more than their minimum requirements for the year concerned. Applications for very large sums or for longer periods tend to be self-defeating, as they would absorb too great a proportion of the available annual total. As a guide, individual awards may range between £100 and £1,000. Please do not apply for a subsidy in excess of £1,000 as this will automatically disqualify your application. Awards will not normally be paid until publication is well advanced at final proof stage. The award is then paid to the publisher. If the award is not taken up within two years it will lapse and must be re-applied for if later required.
