The Egypt Exploration Society funds fieldwork and research through two main financial awards: Fieldwork and Research Grants, and Centenary Awards. Both opportunities are made available to applicants in autumn each year and are judged by our Fieldwork and Research Committee in the new year. 

Fieldwork and Research Grants

Launched in 2014, the Fieldwork and Research Grants have allowed the Society to support projects where funding has been most needed. 

Applications are considered for archaeological fieldwork, survey, aspects of excavation and post-excavation research and scientific analyses; architectural and/or epigraphic recording and analysis; and artefact and art-historical research. Applications must follow at least one of our main lines of research as described in our scientific programme. We particularly encourage applications that include field training opportunities and/or means of engaging local communities in Egypt. 

Applications will open in October 2018

Centenary Awards

The Centenary Awards are intended to encourage early-career Egyptologists and therefore applicants must be current postgraduate students or within five years of having been awarded their degree. The Society welcomes applications for fieldwork and also for museum/archive-based research, particularly where this has arisen from, or can be related to, present or past EES fieldwork. Applications which enrich the work of the Society’s current research projects and relate to its scientific programme are particularly encouraged.

Applications will open in October 2018
