Education Award Fund
The HMRS Educational Award Fund exists to help you to look into the history of Britain's railway heritage. Applications to our Award Fund are open to persons and groups of all ages. Awards are usually in the range of £100 to £250 and we like to publish the results of completed projects in the Society's Journal or display them at our Museum and Study Centre.
We also support some school visits to railways so that children can experience railway history. Many children have never seen a steam engine, let alone smelt one, felt the heat or heard the steam, so when they do, the history comes alive.
Cash awards are available to both individuals and groups, such as schools or colleges, to assist with funding to carry out railway site trips and visit museums as well as other archive sources.
The HMRS also provides some bursaries for students in Higher Education, (Masters and PhD) studying the railways of the British Isles. A limited number of awards are available each academic year, so early application is encouraged.
