Travel grants awarded

Grants offered to early career Egyptologists attending Current Research in Egyptology XVI

This year the Egypt Exploration Society will, once again, support early career Egyptologists by offering travel grants to assist attendance to the sixteenth Current Research in Egyptology conference. This international event will be held at the University of Oxford from the 15th – 18th April 2015. The EES grants allow Egyptology students and independent researchers around the world the opportunity to journey to the UK for the purpose of attending the event and sharing their current research projects focusing on the conference theme ‘Travel in Ancient Egypt’.
