The Scientific Instrument Society awards small grants, of up to £500 each, for research on the history of scientific instruments. SIS Research Grants are intended to support new research into the history of scientific instruments. They are not intended to fund activities to which an applicant is already committed. Grants may be used to cover any reasonable costs of research, including travel and photography. Grants cannot be used to purchase equipment, and are not intended to support conference travel, unless there is a specific research dimension. Grants are open to applicants from any country, and both members and non-members of the Scientific Instrument Society may apply.
Please complete an application, as set out on the Grant Application page. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org . Two rounds of applications will be considered each year. The deadlines for receipt of applications are 1 March and 1 September. Further information can be found at http://www.sis.org.uk/grants/what-we-support.
