Bibliographical Society Grants and Fellowships 2019-2020

Research Grants and Fellowships 2019-20

Applications are invited for the following awards: 

Katharine F. Pantzer Jr Awards in the History of the Printed Book

A generous bequest funds a Fellowship (up to £4000) and a Scholarship (up to £1500) for research on the bibliographical or book-historical study of the printed book in the hand-press period (up to c.1830). Applicants should be established scholars in the field, either university-based or independent.

Major Grants (several awards of up to £2000 each) support bibliographical research, for example book history, textual transmission, publishing, printing, bookbinding, book ownership and book collecting. All of the above awards are intended to assist with immediate research needs, such as travelling expenses, and longer-term support, for example prolonged visits to libraries and archives. Part of the Pantzer Fellowship maybe used to pay for teaching cover. There are no restrictions on applicants’ age or nationality. 

Applications for all of the above awards must be received by 6 January 2020.

The Society also accepts applications throughout the year for Minor Grants (£50-£200) and for Subventions (up to £250) for conference organizers.
