The Egypt Exploration Society invites applications for grants from its Centenary Fund. The total value of the Award will be in the region of £3,000. This sum may be divided among several projects.
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 postgraduate degree.
The closing date for applications is 5 pm (GMT) on Wednesday 30 November 2011. No application received after that date will be considered. Interviews will not be held and applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application as soon as possible. All applications, together with a CV, must be submitted electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must relate to the Society’s current Research Strategy:
"The Egypt Exploration Society is the leading UK organisation carrying out archaeological fieldwork and research in Egypt today. The Society’s current research strategy focuses on landscape development, environmental change and human interaction in the Nile Delta and Valley, including the Sudan. The current research projects range from excavation at major Delta sites, surveying the ancient capital of Memphis and mapping the changing river course at ancient Thebes to text-based and Archive research. The Society works closely with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and is currently engaging with international partners to support and fund excavations and surveys at many other sites".
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.
