Publication Grants

NLHA has set aside funding specifically to help members, member societies and local historians publish their research work in local history. Funds of up to £200 can be provided on the basis of a grant, not a loan, subject only to the condition that NLHA’s contribution must be fully acknowledged within the publication and wherever the publication is advertised. We would expect the applicant to provide a copy (or significant extract for larger publications) for consideration and we reserve the right to reject applications where the standard of the work, the content or the presentation would harm the reputation of NLHA. Publications must relate to the general theme of Nottinghamshire local history.

This scheme is available to anyone carrying out research on local history within our region regardless of whether or not they are NLHA members. In the past we have supported:
