The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) has a limited number of ScARF bursaries available to help cover both the registration fee and travel/accommodation costs for people attending the Scottish Archaeological Forum Conference (SAF 2023) in Aberdeen on the 28th-29th October 2023.
This year’s conference, titled Whose Past is It Anyway?, will explore the concept of ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’ in Scottish archaeology. SAF 2023 aims to highlight efforts to address the under-representation of certain groups within archaeology, both in representations of Scotland’s heritage and in current archaeological practice.
If you are an archaeology student or Early Career Researcher (ECR) carrying out research on any aspect of Scottish archaeology and you would like to attend SAF 2023 – apply for our bursary now!
In return for the bursary, we would like to invite you to write a short piece about your research or project to allow us to share your work on our ECR research pages on the ScARF website. Previous examples of case studies can be seen here.
To apply, please email ScARF Project Manager Helen Spencer with a few lines about yourself, your research and how you will benefit from attending SAF 2023. We will also require a short reference from a lecturer/supervisor.
Please also get in touch with any questions.
The deadline for applications to the SAF 2023 bursary is the 25th September 2023 with decisions communicated by the 7th October to allow everyone time to plan their journey.
