The DHS Outreach Event Grant provides assistance for DHS members to convene a public event to promote design history beyond a traditional academic setting. This Grant is part of the Society’s aim to promote the field of design history and to play a role in shaping inclusive and innovative forums, support activities that offer new perspectives on how design history can engage diverse audiences, and contribute to public discourse that reaches wider communities.

The DHS Outreach & Events Grant will award a total of up to £250 to successful applicants.  Applications are welcome all year round, with the exception of events scheduled during or around the annual DHS conference. 
 
The DHS Outreach & Events Grant is open to DHS members anywhere in the world. 
 
Full details on the award, including eligibility, assessment criteria are provided in the Application Form & Guidance Notes on the right hand side of this page.
 
Please send your completed application form at least 3 months prior to the planned date of the event, to the DHS Administrator Michaela Young (designhistorysociety@gmail.com).
 
All applicants will be notified, by email, of the outcome of their submission within 6 weeks of the application submission.
