A limited number of Bursaries are available each year to assist research projects that involve substantial use of The Rothschild Archive’s collections. The bursaries are primarily intended to facilitate international travel by doctoral students and early career academics. Recipients are usually researchers based outside the United Kingdom who wish to use the Archive’s collections in London and researchers based outside France who wish to use the Archive’s collections deposited with the Archives Nationales du Monde du Travail in Roubaix.
The Bursaries are not intended to cover the full cost of any period of research in the Archive, but are designed to provide practical assistance with travel, accommodation or incidental costs associated with such work. Bursaries may be granted up to a maximum of £3,000 per applicant.
Successful applicants will be required to write a short report for The Rothschild Archive on the research activities the bursary helped to fund.
Applications may be submitted at any time. Applications are considered in the first instance by the Director of the Rothschild Archive London, and they may also be further assessed by members of the Bursary & Education Committee of the Rothschild Archive Trust.
Applicants for Bursaries should first apply to the Director of The Rothschild Archive at the address given below. Applicants should supply two written references from academic supervisors and applications should state:
- Academic Institution
- Level at which the project is being pursued (undergraduate dissertation; post-doctoral thesis, etc.)
- Synopsis of the project
- Length and dates of projected period of research in The Rothschild Archive
- The purpose to which the Bursary will be applied
- The sum applied for
Applicants should be aware that only a limited number of Bursaries is available and that the decision of the Director will be final.
Applications to the Archive may be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
