The Social History Society has made some temporary changes to its funding schemes due to the outbreak of COVID-19.


The Social History Society administers two regular funding streams.

  • Our Events and Activities Grants provide up to £750 to support conferences, workshop or other specialist gathering run by members of the Society.
  • We set up and administer the Joint BME Events and Activities Small Grants scheme, which provides up to £1000 to support activities and events run by BME historians or on subjects relating to Black and Minority Ethnic histories.

We postponed our usual Events and Activities round in October 2020 to introduce an Emergency Grants Fund providing short-term hardship support. We have also previously worked with sponsors to provide Postgraduate Bursaries and Prizes at our annual conference.
