The David Rogers Research Fund

This fund was established in 1997 from a bequest of Dr. David Rogers, a distinguished recusant historian and one-time Chairman of the Society. The Fund seeks to encourage new writing on Reformation and post-Reformation British Catholic history, by helping to defray the cost of necessary travel to libraries and archives at home and/or abroad and the extra subsistence costs involved.

The principle condition for an award is that the research should lead to written publication in a reputable historical forum, hence ‘scholarly tourism’ or personal genealogical research will not qualify.

Please download the Application Form. Four copies of the form, accompanied by two references in sealed envelopes from knowledgeable and appropriate persons, should be submitted to the Chairman by 1st July. Awards cannot be made retrospectively. Each application will be treated on its merits by the Awards Committee of the CRS whose decision is final. The result will be communicated as soon as possible.
