Are you engaged in new research into an aspect of British or British-related theatre?

Every spring, the Society for Theatre Research distributes several thousand pounds in awards for original contributions to theatre research. You don’t have to be an academic to apply – anyone may put in an application – though there are strict criteria as to the nature of eligible projects.

Read all about it on the Awards page here, where you can also see what kinds of projects we have been funding, and download the application form. The closing date is March 27th 2020, so there’s plenty of time to refine your application and find your referees!

A number of fascinating articles have been written by some of our awards recipients: go to the Green Room Blog and select ‘Awards’ in the drop-down category list. You’ll see that the range of projects funded is enormous – the amount of money we can give may be limited, but has so often proved to be the crucial support at the right time. New articles come in every so often – keep an eye on the Awards category!
