Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust Awards
Registered Charity No. 1072150
Lynne Grundy was a brilliant, dynamic and innovative researcher and lecturer at the University of London from 1988 to 1997, and an inspiring teacher. She died from cancer in 1997 when she was forty. The Lynne Grundy Memorial Trust was established with help from her students, colleagues, friends and family, to commemorate her life and work, and to continue her passionate involvement in her specialist disciplines.
We give several grants every year (up to £500 each) to scholars and students in the disciplines of Old English/ Anglo-Saxon or Humanities Computing (who do not already have a permanent full-time academic post or adequate funding) to contribute towards knowledge in these fields, and to improve the situation for people who may be caught in part-time posts or with uncompleted or unrecognised work. The Trust aims to support scholars in realising projects which benefit the academic discipline and the individual.
We've made grants helping people get books published, give papers at conferences, stage theatre productions, finish theses, make an academic contribution, make a difference to their careers. We treat every application as confidential, but award winners can get good publicity for their projects in our widely-circulated newsletter. The application deadline is Easter and awards are made in May or June.
If you are seeking funding for a project in the disciplines covered, please apply in writing to the trust at this address:
