J. Marshall, former President of the RHS. Both are open to candidates without regard to nationality or academic affiliation; The Scouloudi Foundation offers up to three full-year Fellowships and one half-year Fellowship, which are all open to UK citizens or to candidates with a degree from a British university; The Isobel Thornley Bequest offers one Fellowship which is open to candidates regardless of nationality but only to those registered for a PhD at the University of London.

Eligibility requirements: 

The Fellowships are intended as writing-up awards. They will be awarded to doctoral students who are engaged in the completion of a doctorate in history (broadly defined) and who will have completed at least three years of full-time or four years of part-time research on their doctoral programme (and not more than four years’ full-time or six years’ part-time) at the beginning of the academic year in which the awards will be held. Fellowships will normally be tenable for up to one year, but may be awarded for six months to candidates who expect to submit a thesis within that timescale.

These awards cannot be held in conjunction with any other substantial maintenance grant.

At the discretion of the Director of the Institute, Fellows may engage in teaching or other paid work for up to six hours per week.
