What is the Francesca Carnevali Grant?

The Association of Business Historians Francesca Carnevali Travel Grant

Named after one of the key members of the Association of Business Historians and was amongst the most talented of her generation of business and economic historians, who died on 18 May 2013. The aim of the Francesca Carnevali Grant is to further the future growth and development of the discipline of business history by supporting postgraduate students to attend and present their work at the Association’s Annual Conference. A total of £2,000 will be made available each year and will be divided by the number of students attending and presenting at the conference up to a maximum of £200. These grants are intended to contribute towards travel, accommodation and/or registration costs.
