The RHS makes an annual Martin Lynn Scholarship award of £1,500 to assist a postgraduate researcher of African history.

Thanks to the generosity of the family of the late Martin Lynn, the RHS has established an annual award in his memory. Martin Lynn was Professor of African History in the Queen’s University, Belfast, the first scholar to hold a chair in African history in Ireland. His scholarly career was devoted to the history of West Africa and he published most extensively and importantly on the 19th and 20th century history of Nigeria. His scholarly achievements were matched by the reputation he enjoyed as an exciting and concerned teacher and a delightful, generous colleague and friend. This award reflects the interests of the man it commemorates.
