RNS Hardship Grants: applications now open

The Society is offering small hardship grants to those who have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Anyone based in the UK whose work or study involves a significant amount of numismatic study is eligible to apply.

Ten grants of up to £500, to be used for academic or professional purposes, or living expenses, will be made to those who:

a) have held a temporary post in a UK Higher Education Institute, or in the heritage sector, in the last 12 months and whose employment has come to an end during 2020;

b) self-funded post graduate researchers (MA/MPhil/MSt/PhD students), especially those in their third or fourth year;

c) PhD students whose work in their final year was affected by Covid and whose funding has now come to an end

Applicants should email Andrew Burnett (aburnett@britishmuseum.org) with the following details: a brief account of the personal circumstances necessitating the grant, the purpose for which the money is to be used, and the precise sum needed (not more than 300 words in total). They should also include the name of their previous line manager or thesis supervisor as appropriate and ask them to email the same address separately to confirm their personal circumstances in broad terms.

Applicants are responsible for contacting their referee and the reference should arrive before the closing date of 15 January 2021.
