The Social History Society has temporarily changed its funding schemes due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

We have postponed the Grants for Events round scheduled for October 2020 and have introduced an Emergency Grants Fund to provide short-term hardship support.


The Social History Society administers two funding streams.

  • Our Grants for Events provides up to £750 to support conferences, workshop or other specialist gathering run by members of the Society.
  • The joint Social History Society, Economic History Society and History UK BME Events and Activities Small Grants scheme provides up to £750 to support activities and events run by BME historians or on subjects relating to Black and Minority Ethnic histories.

The Society also works with a number of sponsors to provide Postgraduate Bursaries and Prizes at our annual conference.
