Council for British Research in the Levant

In 1998 the British Institute at Amman for Archaeology and History and the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem amalgamated to create the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL).

The CBRL usually awards research and travel grants each year. Research grants when available support archaeological and other humanities and social science subjects (economics, geography, historical studies, legal studies, languages and literature, linguistics, music, philosophy, politics, social anthropology, sociology, and theology/religious studies) working in the Levant (Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria). Travel grants will also be available to help students and junior researchers conduct smaller research projects in these subjects in the region.

CBRL Visiting Fellowships are also offered to enable established scholars to spend a period of between three and nine months at the British Institute in Amman or the Kenyon Institute in Jerusalem in order to undertake postdoctoral research in the humanities and social sciences in the region.

Applications for Research Awards and Visiting Research Fellowships are invited from British citizens or those ordinarily resident in the UK. Applications for Travel Grants are invited from British citizens or those ordinarily resident in the UK or registered on a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate degree in a UK university. Further details of the grant schemes available in 2005-06 may be obtained from www.britac.ac.uk/institutes/cbrl or the CBRL Secretary, CBRL, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH (tel. 020 7969 5296; e-mail: cbrl@britac.ac.uk). The final date for submission of applications for Research Grants should reach the Secretary no later than 1 December 2005. The closing date for Travel Grants is 31 January 2006.
