The Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society usually provides a limited number of grants per year for students of archaeology and related subjects in Great Britain to help with travel expenses for archaeological research or participation in an excavation in Israel.
Unfortunately, our grants programme is currently suspended, due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainties surrounding both field projects and international travel.
We are monitoring the situation closely, and hope to be able to offer student grants in the near future. Watch this space for future updates.
Beneficiaries of AIAS grants are expected to write a short report on how their award assisted them, to be published in the AIAS Bulletin. Previous reports can be found here. Grants are normally considered by the committee once a year in early March. Application forms can be downloaded here, and referee forms here.
Please note that we cannot process any application without two suitable references (see the form for details.) These can be e-mailed to the Executive Secretary and, in addition, a hard copy of the reference should be sent to the address above. Applicants must be studying in the UK at the time of their application and must be members of the Society. Selection for grants will be on the basis of academic merit and evidence of a commitment to a career in archaeology in the written statements submitted by applicants.
