Beacon Society Jan Stauber Grant Applications Available

A good number of our members are also affiliated with the Beacon Society. (If you’re not familiar with this excellent organization, please do check out their recently redesigned web site.) They currently invite applications for the Jan Stauber grant.

The Beacon Society proudly announces that, once again, grants to U.S. and Canadian teachers, librarians, Sherlockian literary societies are available. The grants, in honor of a wonderful Sherlockian, Jan Stauber, will provide up to $500 to fund the development of a project that will introduce young people to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories about his famous fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes.

Interested individuals and organizations are invited to apply for the Beacon Society’s major funding project. The grant period will be from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

The Beacon Society is a not-for-profit affiliate of the Baker Street Irregulars, the New York City-based group of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts founded in 1934.
