The Scientific Instrument Society awards small grants for research on
the history of scientific instruments.
The grants are open to all applicants: both members and non-members may
apply, and there is no geographical restriction. There are two calls
each year and the next deadline is 1 March.
The grants are worth up to £500 each, and the Society commits up to
£1500 in a calendar year. Grants should enable new research, rather than
funding activities to which the applicant is already committed. They may
be used to cover any costs of research, including travel and
photography; however the grants cannot be used to purchase equipment nor
are they intended to support conference travel, unless there is a
specific research dimension.
