The Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas invites applications for the Martin Burr Grant, which awards small amounts of funding (usually up to a maximum of £500) to support any form of activity which brings together language and history and allows them to be enjoyed by a non-academic audience. This money is made available thanks to the generosity of the late Martin Burr who was himself a non-academic with a passion for the study of language and history and the connection between them.
Applications should include a statement of no more than 300 words to explain what the money will be used for, accompanied by a breakdown of the costs. The Henry Sweet Society can only offer up to £500 per application, but this may be supplemented by other sources of funding. Successful projects or activities should acknowledge the contribution of the Henry Sweet Society and the Martin Burr Bequest.
Both members and non-members of the Henry Sweet Society can apply for the grant. However, if non-members are successful in their application, they must join the Society before the grant can be awarded.
Applications and questions should be sent to Olivia Walsh.
