BRITISH SCHOOL OF ARCHAEOLOGY IN IRAQ (Gertrude Bell Memorial)
The School was established in 1932 to promote, support and undertake research in Iraq and neighbouring countries. The School’s academic coverage includes the subjects of anthropology, archaeology, history, geography, language and other related domains from the earliest times until the present.
BSAI RESEARCH GRANTS
The School invites funding applications twice a year for research grants and grants for the organisation of academic conferences. All applications and references must be received by 15 April or 15 October in any given year. Grants are available to support research on Iraq, neighbouring countries, and the Gulf. Awards will normally fall within a limit of £1,500, though more substantial awards may be made in exceptional cases.
Applicants must be residents of the UK or, exceptionally, other individuals whose academic research closely coincides with that of the BSAI. Two academic references are required. For student applicants one referee must be your academic advisor. (If your advisor is a member of the BSAI Research Committee, a third referee must be selected.) No grants are made to support academic fees and no applicant may receive funding from the British Academy and the BSAI for the same research proposal.
While the School has traditionally focused on archaeology and languages, applications are very welcome in any of the fields mentioned above, on any period from prehistory to the present day. Applicants will be informed of the decision of Council concerning their grant application by early July or early January respectively.
In addition to individual research grant requests, the School welcomes outline applications at any time for larger research projects on Iraq. The School will offer assistance in drafting a full research proposal to submit jointly to other funding bodies. For more information about this scheme, please contact the BSAI Secretary.
Details of the requirements and conditions of grants, as well as an application form are available from the BSAI Administrator, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH or on the BSAI website: , email: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Tel. + 44 (0) 20 7969 5274 or Fax. + 44 (0) 20 7969 5401.
