In 2019, the Egypt Exploration Society will fund fieldwork and research through two financial awards:

Centenary Awards. Made available to applicants in autumn each year and are judged by our Research Committee in the new year.

Patrons' Awards. These are made available each autumn for use in the academic year and are judged by our Director and Patron supporters.

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 will open in autumn 2019

Patrons' Awards

Introduced in 2018, the Patron's Awards are an annual award scheme for current UK-based PhD students. Two awards of £500 each will be made to fund an activity related to their research. The awards have been made possible by the generous support of EES Patrons, who will also be involved in the process of selecting the recipients.
