The Society makes multiple research grants available in any given calendar year:
The Hakluyt Society Research Grant, up to six of which will be available per calendar year, with a maximum allocation of £1500 each.
The Hakluyt Society Short-Term Fellowship, two of which will be available per calendar year. The Fellowship may be held for a maximum of four months, with a maximum allowance of £1650 per month.
Applications for funding for the year 2016 must be received by 15 February 2016 (17:00 GMT) at firstname.lastname@example.org. All applicants must be members of the Hakluyt Society.
