Named after one of the key founders of the Association of Business Historians and a distinguished international business historian, the aim of the Tony Slaven Grant is to further the future growth and development of the discipline of business history by supporting doctoral scholars to attend and present their work at the Association’s Tony Slaven Postdoctoral Workshop. Each year a maximum of four awards will be made, each worth £150. The awards are designed to help these emerging scholars meet the travel, accommodation, and registration costs of attending the workshop. The awards will be competitive and will be decided by the local organizing committee of that year’s annual conference. A call for the Tony Slaven Doctoral Workshop will be issued annually. Please follow the instructions on the call for papers for the workshop to be considered for the Grant.
