This fund was set up by The Royal Numismatic Society as a permanent memorial to its former Fellow and Officer, Nicholas Lowick, Curator of Oriental Coins in the British Museum (1962-86). Since 1988 the Society has made annual awards from the Fund to promote the study of Oriental numismatics.
Annual awards from the Fund will be one or more grants towards travel and accommodation costs to enable the successful applicant(s) to study some aspect of Oriental numismatics.
Applications should be made in writing to the Society by 1 March each year. The application should consist of:
- a completed application form;
- a curriculum vitae of the applicant, and
- one written reference from an academic of recognised standing.
Awards will usually be made in May of the same year.
Enquiries and applications should be emailed to: SJansari@britishmuseum.org.
Donations to the Fund are still welcome and should be sent to the same address. Cheques should be made payable to Royal Numismatic Society (Nicholas Lowick Memorial Fund).
