CAMNE STUDENT BURSARIES 2010/11
CAMNE has set aside money to enable postgraduate students who are currently registered at Durham University to attend conferences or pursue other activities related to interdisciplinary research on the Ancient Mediterranean and the Near East. You may apply for help with expenses you will incur until the end of the current financial year, i.e. 31st July 2011; or you may wish to ask for help with expenses you have had since August 2010.
The application procedure is simple:
- State the extent and nature of your expenses (no more than one side of A4 paper, please).
- Get your application signed by your supervisor.
- Send your application to Dr. Ted Kaizer at the Department of Classics by 31st January 2010 (first competition) OR by 30th June 2010 (second competition).
You will hear from us within one or two weeks of the closing date.
As we are keen to support as many students as possible, we will not normally contribute more than 50% towards the overall cost of a given activity and may in some cases decide to contribute less. It is hard to make predictions about the size of typical awards at this stage, but the current state of our finances suggests that they will not normally exceed £100.- We do however recognise that there may be exceptional circumstances and we therefore reserve the right to exercise discretion in this matter, as indeed in other matters pertaining to the award-making process.
If you have any questions about the CAMNE graduate bursaries, please do not hesitate to contact Ted Kaizer at firstname.lastname@example.org, Paola Ceccarelli at email@example.com, or Johannes Haubold at firstname.lastname@example.org
The institute promotes, supports and undertakes research on Iraq and neighbouring countries. Its academic coverage includes anthropology, archaeology, geography, history, languages and related disciplines within the arts, humanities, and social sciences from the earliest times until the present. The Institute invites funding applications twice a year for grants in aid of research or for the organisation of academic conferences. All applications and references must be received by 30 April or 31 October in 2008, and thereafter by 31 January or 31 October in any given year. Awards will normally fall within a limit of £4000, though more substantial awards may be made. Applicants must be residents of the UK or, exceptionally, other individuals whose academic research closely coincides with that of the BISI. Two academic references are required. For student applicants one referee must be your academic advisor. (If your advisor is a member of the BISI Fieldwork and Research Committee, a different referee must be selected.) No grants are made to support academic fees and no applicant may receive funding from the British Academy and the BISI for the same research proposal. Applications are welcomed to support research or conferences on Iraq, neighbouring countries, and the Gulf, in any field of the humanities or social sciences, concerned with any time period from prehistory to the present day. Applicants will be informed of the decision of Council concerning their grant application by early July (2008 only), early April or early January, depending upon the date of submission. In addition to individual research grant requests, the Institute particularly welcomes funding applications for pilot projects preliminary to larger research projects on Iraq and neighbouring countries. The Institute can offer assistance in drafting a full research proposal to submit jointly to other funding bodies. For more information about this scheme, please contact the BISI Administrator. Details of the requirements and conditions of grants, as well as an application form, are available from the BISI Administrator, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH, or on the BISI website: http://www.britac.ac.uk/institutes/iraq/

Grants are available to assist with the costs of visits to universities, libraries, or museums in the UK, related to actual or planned research activities. Any student taking a taught or research postgraduate course related to the ancient Greek or Roman world at any university in the UK is eligible to apply. Grants will be made mainly for the costs of travel, though assistance may also be given with accommodation and subsistence costs. It is expected that applicants will normally also seek a contribution to their costs from their own institution, and that in normal circumstances the home institution will aim to match the Fund's contribution, or at least to share part of the costs. The trustees are particularly keen to support attendance by individuals or groups at seminars or conferences. Applications for grants should be made by completing and submitting the online form, normally at least one month before the intended date of travel. Applicants should also ask their supervisor or course director or another referee to send a brief statement in support of their application by email to Dr Prag (secretary @ thomaswiedemann.org.uk). Awards will not be made for travel to countries other than the UK. Students are eligible for only one award in a single academic session.
The Hellenic Society Council considers applications from institutions for small grants to assist projects and events in the field of Hellenic Studies. Typical projects include: academic conferences, productions of Greek drama, Hellenic events. The grants are usually in the range £100-£400, but larger amounts are sometimes awarded. In order to spread limited resources fairly, all awards are decided annually at the November meeting, when applications will be accepted for grants to projects occuring during the next 18 months from the following 1 January. Application forms are available from the Secretary.
The Dover Fund, administered by the Hellenic Society, considers applications from individuals, with the purpose to further the study of the history of the Greek language in any period from the Bronze Age to the 15th century AD, and to further the edition and exegesis of Greek texts, including papyri and inscriptions, from any period within those same limits. Grants will be made for such purposes as: books, photography (including microfilm and xeroxing), visits to libraries, museums and sites. The sums awarded will vary according to the needs of the applicant, but most grants will be in the range £50 - £250; larger grants may be made from time to time at the discretion of the awards committee. Grants will be made to (based in the UK) currently registered research students, and, within the first five years of their appointment, to lecturers, teaching fellows, research fellows, postdoctoral fellows and research assistants. Applications must be received by February 14 of the year in which a grant is sought; awards are made at the end of March. Application forms are available from the Secretary.
The British Academy offers grants in the humanities and social sciences. Most awards are made to staff employed in universities and other institutions of higher education, but applicants are not restricted by either academic or employment status. Rather, they must show that they are seeking support for advanced research at postdoctoral level (or equivalent). PhD candidates are not eligible to apply, whether or not the project is related to the topic of their thesis. Awards are not available for the support of courses of study leading to professional qualifications. Grants are offered for the support of scholars who are normally resident in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands, except for the programmes for visiting scholars.

Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) at New York University.
Each year the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World makes about 8-12 appointments of visiting research scholars. ISAW's scope embraces research and graduate education in the history, archaeology, and culture of the entire Old World from late prehistoric times to the eighth century AD, including Asia and Africa. Projects of a theoretical or comparative nature relevant to this domain are also welcome. Academic visitors at ISAW should be individuals of scholarly distinction or promise in any relevant field of ancient studies who will benefit from the stimulation of working in an environment with colleagues in other disciplines. Applicants with a history of interdisciplinary exchange are particularly welcome. They will be expected to be in residence at the Institute during the period for which they are appointed and to take part in the intellectual life of the community.
