The Bibliographical Society invites applications for awards from scholars engaged in bibliographical research (on, for example, book history, textual transmission, publishing, printing, bookbinding, book-ownership and book-collecting).

Major grants, of sums up to £2000 will be awarded annually via a number of named awards detailed on the society's website.

In addition, the Society offers a limited number of minor grants, of £50 to £200, for specific purposes such as the costs of travel or of microfilming for research purposes (but not for travel to conferences). Applications for these minor grants may be submitted at any time and should be supported by one reference.
