The Chand A and Z Research Fund for Classic Philately
This fund has been established through the generosity of Mr Vikram Chand in order to make grants of money to aid research and scholarship leading to publication (in any form) in classic philately (defined as to about 1900).
The fund will cover research in all countries and in the disciplines of traditional philately, revenue philately and postal history. Grants from the Chand A and Z Research Fund for Classic Philately will be awarded for the expenses of research (including travel and accommodation), photography or other copying, printing or publication of a book or monograph or a contribution towards such expenses. Awards are made at the absolute discretion of a Grants Panel whose decision in all matters shall be final. Those who may be interested should apply to the Philatelic Collections, British Library, 96 Euston Road, LONDON NW1 2DB. (Published in the British Library Philatelic Collections Newsletter, Issue 15, Spring 2009).
