Grants to Assist Publication



The Mediterranean Archaeological Trust, set up in 1959 for the promotion of the study of archaeology, invites applications for grants, made on a competitive basis, for expenses in 2015-16, in the preparation for final publication of material from archaeological excavation or fieldwork in the Mediterranean world, excluding subventions to publishers or publication of material not from a specific excavation, or in symposia. Within the terms of the Trust, priority may be given to publication of Bronze Age sites. Grants for any amount, however small, will be considered, provided they expedite publication. The grants do not normally exceed £ 2000.

Applications should be submitted on a form available for download (in .doc format) at the bottom of this page (please click on small down-arrow at the bottom right of the page).  Please provide all the information requested on the form and send it by e-mail attachment no later than 31 January 2015, to:

Professor John Bennet – medarchtr (AT)
(in case of difficulty, please contact him on: d.j.bennet (AT)

Two references are essential and it is your responsibility to arrange for these to be sent to the same e-mail address by the same deadline. Referees should address your suitability and experience for the project concerned, as well as their view of the project’s importance to archaeological scholarship.

Successful applicants will be informed in April 2015, and it is essential that a report on the use of the grant is submitted by December 1, 2015
Failure to do so is likely to mean future grant applications from you will not be considered.

Additional guidelines for applicants and referees are available on the application form as well as by clicking here.
