This grant is offered in conjunction with the Instituto Cervantes London and enables members of the AHGBI to access the Reina Sofía Library.

The grant comprises up to £2000.00 for expenses plus free access to the Reina Sofia Library (normally charged at £40 per year). Eligible expenses include travel to London, subsistence and accommodation where necessary. This scheme is open to all members.

In all cases, members are permitted to make only one application to any of these funds in a single year. Applications will be processed by the AHGBI members’ representatives on the Board of Trustees, Jean Andrews and Frank Lough, and normally approved by the Board at its Spring and Autumn meetings.
