The Scottish Archaeological Research Framework (ScARF) has a limited number of bursaries available to help cover both the registration fee and travel/accommodation costs for people attending the Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology conference (CAAUK 2023) taking place in Edinburgh on the 24th-25th November.
This year’s conference, which will be held at Augustine United Church in Edinburgh’s Old Town, will explore the topics of quantitative methods and computer applications in heritage through papers and posters. Attendance and presentations can be done in person or online.
The bursaries can cover both the in-person or online registration fee as well as contribute towards travel and accommodation costs if you are coming to Edinburgh. 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 CAAUK 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/interest in Scottish archaeology and how you will benefit from attending CAAUK 2023. We will also require a short reference from a lecturer/supervisor.
The deadline for applications to the CAAUK 2023 bursary is the Friday 3rd November 2023 with decisions communicated by the 10th November to allow everyone time to plan their journey.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about our bursaries or your application.
