Collections Study Award
As of February 2016, The Prehistoric Society is offering a new award of up to £3000 for the study of a specified area of a museum’s archaeological collections and/or archives relating specifically to human prehistory. The award will be available to partnerships between a museum and a named early-stage researcher (post-graduate, post-doctorate or equivalent experience) and both parties will be eligible for a contribution to the costs incurred. Third-party (‘external’) costs will also be eligible where essential to the successful outcome of the project. The Society’s Awards Committee will award grants to one or more projects each year (the combined amount not exceeding a total of £3000) according to its judgement on best overall value for money. Closing date for applications: 31st January of each year.
