The City of London Phonograph and Gramophone Society (CLPGS)
Richard Taylor Bursary Grants, 2022

The CLPGS is the oldest society of its kind devoted to recorded sound, founded in the UK in 1919, with Thomas Edison as first Patron. It supports and encourages scholarship and publication by individuals in the field of sound recordings, early talking machines and audio preservation, particularly topics with a UK/European focus.

The CLPGS Richard Taylor Bursary (grants) programme is designed to help fund eligible projects in this field, including discographies, bibliographies, historical studies of the sound recording industry and its products, company label research, the history of talking machines, related technical developments and any other subject likely to increase the public's understanding and appreciation of the lasting importance of recorded sound. The grants are primarily - but not exclusively - intended for individuals undertaking academic research at a masters or doctoral level. It could, for instance, help fund independent research and publishing projects.

Both CLPGS members and non-members can apply for grants of at least £500. Grant funds may also be used to underwrite clerical, travel, and editorial expenses. Recipients are required to provide regular status updates to CLPGS; and are also encouraged to submit articles about their projects for publication in the CLPGS Journal For the Record.

The closing date for applications is 31st March 2022.
Full details on how to apply can be found at clpgs.org.uk/news.
