Dear all,

Just a brief reminder that the deadline for the next round of research
grants from the Scientific Instrument Society (SIS) is *Tuesday 1st
September 2015.*

The SIS awards small grants, of up to £500 each, for research on the
history of scientific instruments. Applicants do not need to have any
institutional affiliation and applications that are for less than the full
amount are just as welcome - a properly costed proposal with a clear
relevance to the Society's interests in historic scientific instruments, a
realistic timetable and a tangible result are the most important factors
that the committee will be considering.

Please note that the grant awarded will be paid against actual expenditure
and funds cannot be paid in advance.  The grant is intended to cover items
such as travel, accommodation (excluding meals) and photocopying
costs.  *Please
note that we cannot fund conference travel.*

Further information on what the Society can support and the terms and
conditions of the award can be found at
