I am bored and doing a little lunch hour surfing. In a round about way I came across some grants, funds and awards for historical research.And this one caught my eye. I am thinking that if someone really wanted to take the art of historic dress to the next level, then here is a way to do it.
The Janet Arnold Award from the Society of Antiquaries of London
"Janet Arnold (1932 - 1998) made provision for the establishment of this award in order to further in-depth study of Western dress. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they wish to pursue a particular piece of original research based on items of dress or their remains, with a view to eventually disseminating knowledge gained with the award through publication, display, cataloguing, teaching or through practical use in conservation or accurate reproduction. The amount of money for distribution in any one year will not exceed Â£4000. (Approx $7400 USD)
The award may be used to assist with research costs, including travel,
accommodation and any incidental expenses such as purchase of
photographs or slides...........(more details at http://www.sal.org.uk/grants/janetarnold.php)

Applications are due the first week of January, for the grants given that calendar year. Gives some time if one wanted to pursue such things.
