STR Research Awards 2015

Need a research grant? For something THEATRE-RELATED? Well aren’t you in luck, because there is still time to apply for a research award from the STR! See below for details…

The Society’s research fund includes bequests from the estates of Stephen Joseph, Anthony Denning and Kathleen Barker. Awards may be made annually of sums ranging from £200 to £1,000, as contributions to the cost of research which is substantially concerned with the history and practice of the British theatre.

Private scholars, theatre professionals, academic staff, and students, of any nationality, are welcome to apply: qualifying projects can include completion of work in progress, professional training in research techniques to assist established projects, and subventions towards the publication of completed work in which a publisher is already seriously interested.

Please read the application notes carefully – we cannot give grants for applications for course fees unless for specific professional training in research techniques, nor wholly or principally for general subsistence.

The applications deadline is March 6th this year. For lots more information and to download an application form, please go to
