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.

Patrons' Awards

Introduced in 2018, the Patron's Awards are an annual award scheme funded directly by generous donations from our Patron giving circle. The Awards support early career researchers, though their target audience is renewed annually. Check back here to see what will be offered this year and if they could support your professional development.
