British School at Athens


The Catling Bursary was established in 1989 in honour of Hector and Elizabeth Catling on the occasion of Dr Catling's retirement after eighteen years as Director of the British School at Athens. The purpose of the fund is to provide modest financial assistance, from time to time, to applicants normally of British, Irish, or Commonwealth nationality whose current research in Greek lands lies within the following topics - archaeology, art, history, language, literature, religion, ethnography, anthropology, geography, and all branches of archaeological science.

The Bursary will be awarded, up to a maximum of £500, as follows:

1. to assist in travel and maintenance costs incurred in fieldwork,
2. to pay for the use of scientific or other specialized equipment in or outside a laboratory in Greece or elsewhere,
3. to buy necessary supplies.

Please note that the Bursary is not intended for publication costs, nor can it be awarded to an excavation or field survey team.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and state concisely the nature of the intended work, the amount requested from the fund, and a breakdown of the likely budget. Applications, with two references, should be sent to the Assistant Director, The British School at Athens, Odos Souedias 52, Athens GR 10676, Greece, fax 00 301 723 6560, to arrive no later than 15 December 1998.

Applications will be considered by the School's Centenary Bursary Committee and the successful applicants will be notified by post by the end of February. The Bursary will be tenable immediately and should be taken up by March 2000. On completion of the project the Bursary holder must submit a short report to the Committee. He or she may not reapply to the fund the following year.
