Scientific Instrument Society (SIS) Research Grants - Deadline: September 1, 2011

The deadline for the next round of research grants from the Scientific Instrument Society (SIS) is Thursday 1 September 2011. The SIS awards small grants of up to £500 each for research on the history of scientific instruments. Applicants do not need to have any institutional affiliation and applications that are for less than the full amount are just as welcome – a properly costed proposal with a clear relevance to the Society’s interests in scientific instruments, a realistic timetable and a tangible result are the most important factors that the committee will be considering. Further information on what the Society can support can be found at Examples of previously successful applicants may be found at The application form may be found at If you have any queries about the grants, please contact and a member of the Society will respond in due course.
