The RAF Museum is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring a series of academic prizes designed to inspire and reward high-quality research by up and coming scholars. Applications which consider the historiography of the RAF are particularly welcomed.
The prizes are not, however, confined to works focused on the RAF and are open to students whose studies will further the Museum’s knowledge in relevant areas of archaeology, international relations, strategic studies, law and ethics, museology or air power. Works which help expand knowledge of operational conditions, adversaries or the context of the RAF’s history are also eligible.
Applications are open now for the RAF Museum’s:
• PhD Bursary (£1,500)
• Masters Prize (£250)
• Undergraduate Prize (£150)
Applications close on 25 October 2019.
To apply for one of this year's academic prizes, please download the appropriate documents below: The Royal Air Force Museum PhD Bursary ApplicationThe Royal Air Force Museum PhD Bursary Application GuidanceThe Royal Air Force Museum Masters Prize ApplicationThe Royal Air Force Museum Masters Prize Application GuidanceThe Royal Air Force Museum Undergraduate Prize ApplicationThe Royal Air Force Museum Undergraduate Prize Application Guidance
The prizes are granted on the recommendation of a selection panel consisting of the following members of the Museum’s Research Board.
• Ian Thirsk (Royal Air Force Museum)
• Sebastian Cox (Head, Air Historical Branch)
• Air Commodore (ret’d) Dr Peter Gray (University of Wolverhampton)
• Professor David Edgerton (King’s College London)
• Professor Richard Morris (University of Huddersfield)
The Museum is pleased to note that the winners of its last two PhD bursaries are now in academic posts at UK institutions and that previous winners of both Undergraduate and Masters Prizes are now studying for doctorates. Details of last year's winners can be found here.
