Eric Fletcher Fund
The Eric Fletcher Fund was established in 1984 and is available to individual members of the Society, with preference given to younger members wishing to undertake personal archaeological research. Favoured projects will show a potential for throwing new light on some aspect of medieval life. However, applications for assistance to attend relevant conferences, or for study tours, are also invited. Fletcher Fund awards do not usually exceed £500.
The Sudreys Fund
The Sudreys Fund was set up in 1992 to offer an annual award or awards in the region of £500 for travel related to research in the field of Viking studies. Applications are invited from specialists in the Viking Age, in post in universities, museums, archaeological units, etc, for grants towards travel in relation to their discipline. This award is not available for the completion of post-graduate dissertations. While preference is given to archaeologists, applicants from other disciplines are not excluded. Sudrey travel grants are payable five weeks before the start of the journey, so that full advantage may be taken of reduced fares, etc.
