The Yarwood Award

The Costume Society is commemorating the work of the dress historian and former chairman of the society, Doreen Yarwood (1918-1999), with an award of up to £500 and a one-year membership.

The award is aimed at helping an MA student engaged in high quality research into the history of dress and/or textiles with expediture relating to the completion of their dissertation.

Please note that the award is not intended to help with the overall cost of the degree but with particular expenses for items such as travel to a library, archive or collection, subsistence while away and archive reproduction fees.

If you are unsure whether you are eligible, please emails us.

Applicants have to be enrolled in an MA course at a British institution.

The history of dress and/or textiles has to be central to their research topic.
