Travel scholarships for classics students

28 April 2014

The Society of Dilettanti offers travel scholarships for undergraduate students planning an independent visit to classical sites.

Through the generosity of Lord Normanby, the Society of Dilettanti is able to offer annually awards for British students of Classical Studies at a British University for visiting classical sites and museums in Greece, Italy or the Eastern Mediterranean. The intention is that this should provide an opportunity to see and experience at first hand works of Classical art and architecture. Appropriate candidates would be undergraduates planning an independent visit to the Mediterranean in the summer vacation.

Scholarships for 2014 will be £500. Applicants should give a brief account of their academic career and status, and provide a statement (roughly 500 words) of their reasons for applying, indicating the dates when the travel is planned and how the scholarship would be used. 

Applications must not exceed four A4 pages, including the CV and description of proposed travel, and should be sent in PDF format.

Candidates should send their applications by email to the Deputy Director of the Institute of Classical Studies admin.icls@sas.ac.uk. At the same time they should invite two referees to e-mail the Deputy Director on their behalf. The closing date for receipt of applications and references is Friday 23 May 2014.

Successful candidates will be asked to submit a brief report on their travels to the awarding Committee.
