Costume Society Yarwood Research Grant

Closing Date: 30/05/2022

Annual grant for MA students to support the completion of a final project or dissertation that deals with an aspect of the history of dress and/or textiles.

The Costume Society is a UK registered charity that seeks to promote the study and preservation of historic and contemporary dress.

The Society’s Yarwood Research Grant is awarded annually to an MA student whose final project or dissertation deals with an aspect of the history of dress. The student must be engaged in high-quality research into the history of dress and/or textiles, with expenditure relating to the completion of their dissertation.

Originality of subject and rigour of research are part of the judging criteria, and the Society is looking for students tackling new subjects and/or approaching their topic from a new angle, using new sources and/or methodologies.

The grant commemorates the work of the dress historian and former Chair of the Society, Doreen Yarwood (1918-1999).
