The Power and Postan Fund

This bursary, made available by The Power and Postan Fund, is available to Junior Research Fellows of the Institute of Historical Research.

Eligibility requirements

The Power and Postan Fund is awarded to eligible Junior Research Fellows of the Institute of Historical Research, on the recommendation of the Director, to support the cost of organizing and hosting colloquia or travel and accommodation costs accrued when conducting research or attending a conference (funds are available for conference attendance – the applicant need not be giving a paper). Up to £6000 will be awarded annually.

ELIGIBILITY

The fund is open to all Junior Research Fellows of the Institute of Historical Research, without regard to nationality or other academic affiliation. There is no restriction on the number of applications a Fellow can submit to the fund within the year (although there are two deadlines by which applications must be received). Individual Fellows are welcome to apply to host multiple colloquia, make multiple research/conference trips, or for funds for a combination of colloquia and travel costs. However, priority may be given to those who have not received Power and Postan funding already within the academic year.
