Research Grant
From 2019 the British Society for the History of Pharmacy has offered an annual grant of £500 to support a project in the history of pharmacy. The award was aimed at pharmacists, pharmacy technicians or students of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. The grant was awarded as one single £500 award or split into two £250 grants for research over two years. The award also included membership to the BSHP for the duration of the project.

The completed work would then be given as a short presentation, or poster, at the BSHP conference within 2 years of the award being made.

The future of this grant is being discussed along with the development of a new BSHP Bursary.
