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.
