Fieldwork and Research Grants and Centenary Awards 2017

In January, the Fieldwork and Research Committee met to consider applications for both the Society’s Fieldwork and Research Grants and Centenary Awards. The Egypt Exploration Society has been funding research and excavation for 135 years and has a rich history of survey, excavation and research at sites throughout Egypt and in the Sudan. Fieldwork is our top priority and our Fieldwork and Research Grants support our principle to bring new information about Egypt’s heritage to light. The Centenary Fund was established using donations raised by an appeal in our centenary year, 1982 and the awards are intended to fund small research projects by early-career researchers that would otherwise not be undertaken, and to provide not only funding but also valuable experience in planning and delivering a fieldwork or research project. Recipients of the grants and awards are expected to share the results of their work online, and through the Society’s publications and events programme.

We are delighted to announce that the following projects have been awarded funds:
