In 2006 the Association for the History of Glass inaugurated a Grant Scheme. Its purpose is to contribute towards educational or research activities consistent with the Association's charitable aims.

Qualifying Activities
There are no restrictions placed on who might apply for a grant, nor on the area of glass studies, except that it should include the kinds of activities which are appropriate with the Associations' charitable aims. These may include:
  • Attendance at a conference to present lectures or posters
  • Travel for study purposes
  • Fieldwork projects
  • Publication of scholarly works

The grant committee will judge the applications on merit and their closeness to the AHG charitable aims and objectives. Only one application may be made in each year, and no two grants may run concurrently.
A condition of the successful award of a grant is that the applicant writes a report explaining the nature of the work undertaken for publication in Glass News. This report is important because it informs other people about the work and it also supports AHG's main charitable purpose (advancing knowledge through the study of glass).
A total of 2,000 GBP (pounds sterling) has been allocated for grants in 2016, with individual awards up to 500 GBP.

Application for a Grant
