The purpose of the Society's Research Travel Bursaries is to support relevant research by scholars, at any stage in their career, who are not in receipt of the requisite funding from other sources. The value of all grants is between £300 and £1000 (GBP). There are two application rounds each year, with the deadlines falling on 1st September and 1st March; applicants will be informed of the Society's decision within three weeks of the deadline.

Eligibility and Requirements: Bursaries are open to all scholars whose research falls within the interests of the Society, broadly defined; but preference may be given to those who are members of the Society. The Society regrets that the Travel Research Bursaries scheme cannot provide funding to attend academic conferences or other organized events.. Successful applicants will be required to submit a report following their research trip, with accounts. The Society’s support should be acknowledged prominently in any subsequent publication, and the Society informed of these.
