Our grants and awards are aimed at students of the history and theory of dress, costume design and production as well as other related fields
The Costume Society has four sources of funding to support its constitutional aim of providing education in dress studies. Our grants and awards are aimed at students of the history and theory of dress, costume design and production as well as other related fields, to support their research, museum work experience and reward excellence in costume design. We also make grants to museums and other institutions to cover the costs of conservation of objects.
