We also support a national funding scheme for Black and Minority Ethnic History (administered by the Social History Society, and supported by Economic History Society, Royal Historical Society, History of Education Society (UK), History UK, History Workshop Journal, Society for the Study of Labour History and Women’s History Network. The scheme provides grants of up to £750 to support activities and events run by BME historians or on subjects relating to BME history.

This support is open to professional historians (working in universities or elsewhere), independent scholars, retired staff and students alike. The only stipulation is that applicants should be (or be willing to become) members of either the SHS or EHS. In the case of applicants who are permanently employed in higher education institutions, their department should also be (or willing to become) a subscribing member of History UK.
