Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society Research Grants
The Society has limited funds to support archaeological and historical research in Bristol, Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. Applications for grants should be made to the research committee, care of the Honorary General Secretary. Grants are normally awarded in April; applicants will be advised of the result during May. Grants will not normally exceed £1000 but may be larger in exceptional circumstances. The grants are intended to cover out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, photography or a contribution towards specialist reports. Grants will not be awarded for expenses already incurred and will normally be payable in two equal instalments at the beginning and end of the project.
Applicants will be asked to supply receipted invoices on completion of the project. Applications will only be accepted if they are made on the official application form which may be obtained from the Honorary General Secretary. Each application must be accompanied by details of the project and written estimates of the costs to be met by the grant. In the case of applications relating to archaeological projects the accompanying details should include an 8-figure national grid reference and a summary of known information from, for example, the Historic Environment Record. The accompanying details should not exceed 600 words in length and should be supplied on single-sided A4 paper.
Applications must be received by the Research Committee not later than 1 February in each year. Applications received after 1 February will be considered in the following year.
