The Society offers conference bursaries of up to £300 each to postgraduate students who are studying any aspect of the history of France or of its current or former possessions and who are registered to do so at a university in the UK or Ireland. Such grants will be put towards the cost of attending, and preferably giving a paper at, conferences. This scheme excludes the annual SSFH Conference, for which a reduced postgraduate subscription is already available.
Applicants for the Society's awards should be members of the Society at the time of application. Bursary applications may be accompanied by applications for membership, full details of which can be found here. It is a condition of award that successful candidates present a report on their research and on the trip funded by the Society. This must be sent to the Secretary in electronic form, and should be no longer than two sides of A4.
Applications should provide details of the conference to be attended and state how attendance will assist the research on which the student is engaged.
There is no deadline.
Queries, applications, and reports should all be directed to the Secretary:
