Application to the Andrew Sherratt Fund 

In celebration of the gifted vision of our colleague Prof. Andrew Sherratt regarding old World Prehistory, a memorial fund was established after his death in 2006 by the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield, to support international scholarship, particularly for students at the beginning of their careers.

The purpose of the fund is to assist postgraduate students (Masters / PhD) in Old World Prehistory, from academic institutions anywhere in the world, to travel or gain access to resources that would otherwise be unavailable to them.

The Department of Archaeology now invites applications for grants from the Fund for use in 2023.

Applications can be for amounts up to £1,000, and should be received by the deadline of 31st March 2023.

Decisions on the award of grants will be made by 30 April 2023 and successful applicants notified shortly after. Payment of the grant to successful applicants will be made upon supply of receipts accompanied by a 750 word report on the project plus at least one photograph relating to the project.
