The HSSA Grant Scheme for 2017 is now open.

These Grants, which are awarded each year for projects related to South Australia's history, make possible projects that might not otherwise even get off the ground. The Historical Society of South Australia actively strives to support projects that promote the study, recording, writing and exhibition of South Australia's stories.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017 HSSA Grants Scheme.
