Scottish Historical Review Trust

The Scottish Historical Review Trust aims to promote research and publication in the field of Scottish History. Besides responsibility for the scholarly journal, the Scottish Historical Review, and the Scottish Historical Review Monograph Series, the Trust seeks to support postgraduate research on any subject relating to Scottish History by means of a limited number of bursaries of up £1,000 on an annual basis. Applicants in any of the following categories can apply:


1) Masters students, or students within one year following the completion of their Masters degree.
2) Ph.D. students, or students within one year following the completion of their Ph.D.
3) Independent scholars who do not currently hold an academic post or post-doctoral position.

Applicants should complete the bursary scheme application form and provide a synopsis (of no more than 1,000 words) of the research to be supported by the Trust, outlining its significance and contribution to the field. The summary should be accompanied by a supporting reference (see appropriate application form for details). The Trustees will offer a single award or series of smaller awards within each strand, to be announced annually in mid-May. Submissions are to be lodged with the Secretary of the Trust no later than 31 March.
