The Society has always been keen to encourage research and its publications contain the results of such research. Occasionally the Society itself has promoted research projects, but on the whole individual members carry out research over a period of time, sometimes resulting in books or papers in Transactions.

Over the years sums of money have been left to the Society to encourage research and this money forms the Research Fund to which members and others can apply for grants.

If you wish to apply for a grant please read the Guidance Notes for those Applying for Grants and if your feel you project is eligible for a grant complete the application form and send it to Prof. Marilyn Palmer, 63 Sycamore Drive, Groby, Leicester, LE6 0EW, or by email to: marilynpalmer@virginmedia.com.

The research fund usually considers applications twice a year in March and October.
