The Prehistoric Society

The John and Bryony Coles Bursary (Student Travel Award)

This bursary was established in 1998, by John and Bryony Coles, to enable student members of the Prehistoric Society to travel away from their home country or region to study and work at prehistoric archaeology. Two awards of between £200 and £300 each are usually given each year.

The purpose of the bursary is to permit the recipients to travel abroad (i.e. outside their countries of residence and registered study) to gain a better understanding of prehistoric archaeology, through the active study of archaeology, whether by taking part in excavations, surveys or other fieldwork, by working in museums, or by travelling to visit sites. Attendance at conferences would not be an eligible activity unless it was an integral part of such a programme. For the purposes of this award the UK and the Republic of Ireland shall be considered as one region, and applicants from either of these countries must travel outside that region.

Eligibility: Applicants must be registered students of archaeology (either part or full time) in the later stages of undergraduate study or in the early years of postgraduate study, or other equivalent status, without restriction on age. All applicants must provide proof of their student status (i.e. a letter from their institution). Student cards will not be accepted.

All applications and references must be received by 31st January.
