Last year, the Women’s Studies Group 1558-1837 offered its first ever bursary to an early career researcher, independent scholar or PhD student who was a member of the Group to “support research in any aspect of women’s studies in the period 1558-1837”. The bursary was very popular, we had many applications and so this year we are pleased to be able to offer it again, but this time to make two awards, the first of £500 and the second of £250. The money will be paid on presentation of receipts and the winners will be expected to give a paper at a WSG seminar the following year, or, if based abroad, write a report for the WSG website.
The grant may be awarded for a new or continuing interdisciplinary or single-discipline project. For further information about the bursary, and to apply, please download the application form, which is available on the website. The deadline for applications is November 30th 2017. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by January 2018.
