CSG Research & Conference Grants
Small Projects Fund:
At the 2004 AGM a proposal was carried to support limited funding each year for castle-related research and excavation undertaken by CSG members. Members are invited to send in proposals, which will be reviewed by the Funding Committee, consisting of Pamela Marshall, Richard Eales and Peter Purton. Grants totaling £500 will be available each year. Applications will be considered on their merits and any funding will be granted on a one-off basis. Application should be made by letter to the Secretary and should arrive no later than October 31st for projects in the following year. Decisions will be agreed by January 31st of each year. Successful applicants will be expected to submit a report on completion of the work, which may be published in the CSG Bulletin.
