Katharine F Pantzer Jr Research Awards

The Society has received a generous bequest from the estate of the distinguished bibliographer Katharine F. Pantzer Jr and has established two research awards in her memory:

  • a Fellowship of up to £4,000, awarded occasionally
  • and a Scholarship of up to £1,500, to be awarded annually.

Applicants' research for either of the Pantzer awards must be within the field of the bibliographical or book-historical study of the printed book in the hand-press period, that is up to c.1830. Applicants should be established scholars in the field but may be university-based or independent researchers.

The Pantzer Fellowship is intended to assist with both immediate research needs, such as microfilms or travelling expenses, and longer-term support, for example prolonged visits to libraries and archives. Applicants may use a part of the Fellowship money to pay for teaching cover.

General Guidelines for Applicants and the application forms for the Katherine F. Pantzer Jr Awards can be downloaded from the page for Application Procedure. The Pantzer Scholarship may be applied for as one of the named Major Grants.
