With conference season upon us, we know how expensive it can be to pay for registration fees, travel and accommodation. As part of our dedication to supporting students and Early Career Researchers in Scottish Archaeology, we are happy to offer bursaries to those wishing to attend upcoming conferences and events.
Over the next few months, both the Edinburgh, Lothians and Borders Archaeological Conference (ELBAC) and the Tayside and Fife Archaeological Committee (TAFAC) conference will take place, showcasing the rich and diverse research ongoing regionally across Scotland. 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 TAFAC, ELBAC, or another conference/event – apply for our bursary now!
Our bursaries can cover both the in-person or online registration fee as well as contribute towards travel and accommodation costs if needed. If you are travelling as a group from a Scottish university, we can also offer bursaries to cover group travel and/or accommodation.
In return for the bursary, we 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a few lines about yourself, your research/interest in Scottish archaeology and how you will benefit from attending your chosen conference or event. We will also require a short reference from a lecturer/supervisor.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about our bursaries or your application.
