Research Grants | Scottish Society for Art History



The Scottish Society for Art History promotes scholarship in the history of Scottish art and art located in Scotland. To facilitate this, the SSAH offers research support grants from £50 to £500 to assist with research costs and travel expenses.

We do not fund attendance at conferences, reprographics or subsistence. Applicants must be working at a post-graduate level or above and should either be resident in Scotland or doing research that necessitates travel to Scotland.

Recipients will be given a one-year free membership of the SSAH and will be asked to write a report for the SSAH newsletter, explaining how the grant was used.

For more information, please visit the Scottish Society for Art History website:

To apply please send via email:

  • a cover letter
  • current curriculum vitae
  • a brief project description (300-500 words) specifying how the grant will be used and how it relates to a broader research agenda
  • a budget
  • the name and e-mail address of one reference

 Applications must be sent electronically to the Michelle Kaye, SSAH Grants Officer at

 Please note that in 2018 there will only be one round for grant applications, the deadline for which is 31st October 2018.
