The BSHS is accepting applications for grants of £750 to support travel to attend the International Congress of the History of Science and Technology (ICHST) in Rio in July 2017.

To apply for a travel grant, you must be a BSHS member and send a brief email to the Executive Secretary, 
[email protected], by March 17 2017, with the subject heading “ICHST Grant Application.”  In the body of the email, please (a) confirm your status as a member of the Society; (b) indicate your institutional affiliation (if any), and whether you’re a postgraduate student, postdoctoral fellow, staff member etc.; and (c) indicate whether you’ve submitted a paper proposal for consideration at the Rio conference, and if so, please provide the abstract and any other relevant details.

Successful applicants will be notified by the end of March, in time for Early Bird registration rates for the conference (which are available up to April 14). Preference will be given to applicants who will be giving talks at the conference.

This call is in line with the BSHS’s commitment to promoting international activity and exchange. The Society is prepared to award in excess of £20,000 to assist our members in participating in the 2017 International Congress of the History of Science and Technology.
