Apply now for the 2018 Shiers Trust Award

The Trust can make a grant of up to £4000 towards publishing work on any aspect of the history of television

The Shiers Trust grant, now in its 18th year, is normally worth £2,000. This year, to mark the 90th anniversary of the RTS, it has been raised to £4,000. 

Launched in 2000, the Shiers Trust grant is named after George Shiers, a distinguished US TV historian.

The grant has enabled a range of projects, including the digitalisation of back issues of the Radio Times and the creation of a website which presents a collection of historical consumer electronics images.

Applications can be for anything from research to project development, and all projects must make a valuable contribution towards the Trust’s aim of conserving television history.

Applications are now open and close on the 30 March 2018. Click here to download an application form.

For more information, visit the Shiers Trust page or email RTS archivist Clare Colvin.
