The Egypt Exploration Society, the leading UK organisation carrying
out archaeological fieldwork and research in Egypt today, invites
applications for grants from its Centenary Fund. The total value
of the Award will be in the region of £5,000. This sum will be
divided among several projects, and the maximum any single project
will be allocated is unlikely to exceed £2,500.
The Centenary Awards are intended to encourage early-career
Egyptologists: applicants must be current postgraduate students
or within five years of having been awarded their degree.
The closing date for applications is 17:00 (GMT) on Friday
13 December 2019.
No application received after that date will be considered.
Interviews will not be held; applications will be considered
by the Society’s Research Committee in January 2020 and
applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application
no later than 31 March 2020. All applications, together with
the required references, must be submitted electronically to:
[email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> .
The Society welcomes applications for fieldwork and also for
museum/archive-based research, particularly where this has arisen
from, or can be related to, present or past EES fieldwork.
