Applications for our 2022 Travel Grants are now open.

We are offering grants of up to £750. These include the Nicholas Slope Memorial Award, and The Sheila and Anthony Rabin Awards.

What are these grants for?  Well, we want to help students embrace their passion for archaeology. So our grants aim to help with the costs of traveling to Israel, either to do research or take part in an excavation.

Grant Criteria

To get one of our grants, you must be an undergraduate or postgraduate student of archaeology or a related subject, and studying in the UK at the time of your application.

We’ll be giving out grants on the basis of academic merit and evidence of a  commitment to a career in archaeology.

How to Apply

Download and complete our Application Form. You should email this to our Executive Secretary (se*******@ai**.uk), along with a copy of your CV.

We’ll also need two academic references. Ask your referees to send these directly to the Executive Secretary. Click here to download our Referee Form.

Grant Conditions

Beneficiaries of AIAS grants are expected to write a short illustrated report about their experience in Israel, to be submitted by the end of October. These will appear on our website, and may also be published in our journal Strata.

The joy of discovery: this could be you!
