Conferences and Initiatives Fund

Are you planning to hold a conference, workshop, special meeting or something similar?

The BAHS is keen to encourage otherwise unfunded conferences and other interesting initiatives in British rural history or comparative rural history including a British element. Activities that might encourage wider participation in the Society and innovative research proposals (particularly from those who are not full-time university academics) will be particularly eligible for support. The Society is especially keen to encourage one-day workshops that might generate articles for the Agricultural History Review.

Grants will be up to £500 in value. They will not normally be repeated in cases where the Society is the sole funder. The Society’s support must be fully acknowledged in any publicity, meeting materials or publications. Any events held with support from the fund should be advertised on the BAHS website and, as far as is practicable, be open equally to all interested historians. It is expected that successful applicants will already be, or will become, members of the British Agricultural History Society.

For questions concerning the objectives and criteria of the fund please email the BAHS Secretary. Closing dates for applications are 1 March and 1 September. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application within 2 months. Please fill in the form below.
