The Paul and Gladys Richards Research Grant Program for Studies in British Transferware

Research Grant TCC

The TCC research grant program is named in the Richards’ honor. Paul and Gladys Richards were avid transferware collectors, and a charitable foundation was established in their memory in 1995. A long-time supporter of the Transferware Collectors Club, the Richards Charitable Foundation also provided a generous grant to aid in the establishment of the club in 1999.

All grant applications must be received by May 4 of the year the request is made.  Download Grant Application

Annual funding for this program remains at $10,000. To date the program has funded over thirty projects. A summary of winning proposals from previous years is available on the club’s website. Grant funding for selected proposals is made available by the end of August each year.
