        Subject: BSHS Undergraduate Archive Grants

Are you an undergraduate student writing a dissertation on a topic in the history of science, technology and medicine who would benefit from consulting archives? Or are you a supervisor who feels that your dissertation student(s) would make the most of the opportunity to include relevant primary archival material?

If so, then why not apply for one of the OEC archive grants awarded by the British Society for the History of Science? These awards, of up to £150, are specifically designed to cover travel, or similar costs, associated with archival visits. Please send a completed application form (attached) to outreach at bshs.org.uk<mailto:outreach at bshs.org.uk>, to whom any further queries should be directed. Grant recipients will be invited to write a short account of their most exciting archival find for the BSHS magazine, Viewpoint http://www.bshs.org.uk/publications/viewpoint . For more details of this and other grant schemes run by the BSHS, see: http://www.bshs.org.uk/outreach-and-education/outreach-and-education-committee-grants.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on Friday 17th January 2014.

Successful applicants will be notified by Friday 14th February 2014.
