New Research Grants in Marine and Maritime Archaeology

New Research Grants in Marine and Maritime Archaeology

In its first year of operation, the Honor Frost Foundation is seeking to make awards not exceeding in total £100,000 for marine and maritime archaeology in the Eastern Mediterranean with an emphasis on Lebanon, Syria and Cyprus.

Qualifications – Grants are available to independent scholars, affiliated scholars and institutions, and are intended to support or facilitate research projects covering any period or aspect of maritime archaeology related to the above areas. In the present round it is likely that individual grants will not normally exceed £10,000, which could be the total cost of a piece of work, a contribution to work already in progress, or the cost of a pilot study that might in due course lead to a major research project. Grants are open to all scholars or institutions with preference to those working in the above named areas. Applications from scholars based in the Eastern Mediterranean will be particularly welcome.

Timeline – Applications should be submitted by 15 October 2012 using the Grant Applications Form on the HFF website

The outcome of the awards will be advised in December 2012 by email. Decisions on grant awards are final and no feedback will be given on any applications.

Requirements – Grantees will be required to provide a written report of their work and provide an accounting of expenses. All or part of grantees’ reports may be published on the HFF website and possibly in future HFF newsletters.

Future Grants – It is expected there will be another round of applications for grants to be awarded in the financial year 2012-13. It is intended that there will be a regular operating cycle of grants awarded by the Foundation.
From time to time the HFF will consider urgent out of cycle applications on an exceptional basis.

Contact – Please contact the HFF Executive Director at  with any enquiries.
