Each year, the Royal Numismatic Society awards research grants from its various prize funds.
The Price, Lowick, Kreitman, CNG, Marshall and Casey funds all exist to support innovative research happening in various areas of numismatics. These are available to Fellows and non-Fellows alike, and the field of numismatic research which each fund encompasses is listed on their separate pages. The grants are usually less than £1000, but larger grants will be considered, and the Casey Fund awards individual grants of up to £2,500.
Awards are usually made in April or May of each year.
