The Pagett and Betton Funds
The Pagett Fund
The Pagett Fund was set up by the Society using a bequest made by John Pagett to enable the Trustees to make grants to individuals or organisations who are seeking funding to pursue activities which fall into at least one of the following categories:
- The advancement of the education of the public in archaeological and historical investigation in Shropshire.
- The preservation of antiquities in the county of Shropshire.
The Betton Fund
The Betton Fund was originally established with a view to supporting the publication of Parish Registers in Shropshire and the adjoining counties. The terms of the Fund have now been amended to support the publication and accessibility of local history resources in Shropshire which would be of direct, or indirect, use to family history.
The Una Rees Fund
The Una Rees Fund was set up by the Society using the bequest made by Dr Una Rees in 2021 to enable the Trustees to make grants to individuals or organisations who are seeking funding to pursue activities, including research and publications, which support medieval studies in Shropshire.
Applicants should be advised that grants will typically be up to a maximum of £500 for the Betton or Paggett Funds and £1,500 for the Una Rees Fund though larger sums may be considered subject to the discretion of the Trustees and the availability of funds. Applications can be made at any time.
