Romney Society Bursary

The Romney Society was formed in Kendal in 1993 with the purpose of exploring the art of the eighteenth century with particular reference to the life and times of George Romney (1734-1802) and his contemporaries.

The Society is offering a bursary of £500 or $900 for a piece of original research work which will be published in the Transactions of the Romney Society subject to the approval of the Editorial Board. The Society’s intention in creating the bursary is to offer a platform to students and academics in their first posts who otherwise may not have the opportunity to be published and to encourage those with an interest in the field.

The area of study should be an aspect of the life or work of George Romney or any contemporary linked to Romney (provided the link is part of the study).

Applications may be made at any time and should be in the form of a proposal of not more than 150 words.
