Funding from Francis Forbes Society

The Francis Forbes Society  is offering small grants for legal history research proposals. The amount awarded will depend on the number of applications, but typically grants are a few thousand dollars to help defray costs of research/travel etc..  Any grant from the Fund must be made to a Deductible Gift Recipient, such as a University.

There is no formal application process. All that is necessary is to send Simon Chapple (  a brief outline of the research proposal so that it may be considered by the Council of the Society. They don’t require a particularly detailed or formal proposal for the Council but something which outlined the purposes for which the grant was sought and its connection with the University, and how it would advance the Society’s aims is requested.  

The Society intend to make its decision about which projects to fund by 26 May 2023, so would appreciate receiving any applications prior to 19 May 2023.’

The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places. The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales.
