The Suffolk Local History Council provides resources to people working on projects relating to the local history of Suffolk.
Gwen Dyke Project Fund
The purpose of the Gwen Dyke Project Fund is to assist publication, in the widest sense, of any form of Suffolk local history, and is administered by the Gwen Dyke Project Fund Sub-committee of the SLHC. However, there is no requirement for applicants to be members of the SLHC.
PUBLICATIONS: In respect of printed publication proposals, the sub-committee must see the manuscript, or a detailed outline, of the proposed work before deciding whether or not to make a loan. The Gwen Dyke Project Fund Sub-committee would also like to know the probable printing costs and how many copies it is envisaged producing. The projected work should make an original contribution to the history of Suffolk.
EXHIBITIONS & PHOTOGRAPHIC PROJECTS: For exhibitions, photographic projects and the like, any application must include an outline indicating the nature and extent of the project together with details of any photographs, recordings, texts or other materials for the provision of which assistance is sought.
LOANS: No interest will be charged on a loan provided that it is repaid within two years.
GRANTS: The Gwen Dyke Project Fund Sub-committee has discretion to make a grant rather than a loan in appropriate circumstances.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Successful applicants are requested to publish an acknowledgement that the publication, project or exhibition has been supported by the Suffolk Local History Council.
Any applications or enquiries should be made in the first instance to the Suffolk Review Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org
