Prizes and Fellowships

There are a growing number of ways in which students and researchers can get support for their studies, from Fellowships that will provide financial support to Prizes of various kinds.

The BCMH provides annual prizes to final year undergraduates and Masters students in recognition of outstanding dissertations on maritime subjects (broadly defined). Nominations are made by Heads of Departments. You can find out more on our Undergraduate Prizes and Masters Prizes pages.

The BCMH, in association with Boydell & Brewer, provides a Doctoral Prize for the best doctoral thesis on a maritime subject. For full details, see our Doctoral Prize page.

Thanks to a generous legacy left by the estate of Professor John Armstrong, and in his memory,  BCMH now awards the annual John Armstrong Prize, for the best article in the field of maritime economic history in any peer-reviewed, scholarly journal. You can find out more on our John Armstrong Prize page.

We have also compiled a list of some other organisations that offer prizes and fellowships.
