The Honor Frost – Flinders Doctoral Research Scholarship in Underwater Archaeology is a 3 year scholarship to support a candidate while they undertake a PhD in the area of Underwater Archaeology at Flinders University.
Two fully funded PhD scholarships are available to commence in 2016. One scholarship will be awarded to a citizen of an Eastern Mediterranean country who plans to return to that country as a professional in underwater archaeology or underwater cultural heritage. The second scholarship is open to all applicants regardless of citizenship.
The Scholarship provides a generous living stipend, which is tax exempt and indexed annually. The HFFDR Scholarship will cover international student tuition fees charged by Flinders University.
These scholarships are funded jointly by the Honor Frost Foundation and Flinders University to commemorate the Flinders University Maritime Archaeology Program’s role as Chair Holder of the UNESCO UNITWIN Network for Underwater Archaeology (2015 – 2018). The purpose of the scholarship is to enable a suitably qualified graduate to carry out, under the supervision of a member of staff, a program of study leading to a PhD in Archaeology, with a focus on underwater archaeology.
