Further details and application forms for any of the Society’s grants are available from the General Secretary, Society of Antiquaries of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J OBE. Other grants are available.
The Fund was established in 1968 as a result of a bequest to the Society by the late Mrs M M Lambarde. The income is to be applied for the provision of a travelling scholarship or travelling scholarships in archaeology or otherwise for the promotion of antiquarian studies . Applications should include a brief summary of the applicant’s qualifications and field of study and the names of two referees. The closing date for applications is 31 December each year. As a guide the total amount for distribution is unlikely to exceed £2,000.
The Society disburses substantial funds for the support of archaeological and documentary research within its fields of interest. Grants are of two types: Major Grants of up to £20,000 per year are awarded on an annual basis for a period not exceeding five years; and Minor Grants of sums up to £2,000 per year may be awarded annually for up to 3 consecutive years. A maximum of four research projects in receipt of a Major Grant will be supported by the Society at any one time and it is therefore unlikely that any more than one or two Major Grants will be available in any one year. The closing date for applications is 31 December each year.
