Applications are invited for the 2016 Andrew Sherratt Fund

Grants of up to £1000 to be awarded to Old World Prehistory students of any academic institution in the world - apply by 29th January

After the death of Professor Andrew Sherratt in 2006 a memorial fund was established by the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield, to support international scholarship particularly for those at the beginning of their careers.

The purpose of the fund is to assist postgraduate students 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 2016. Applications can be for amounts up to £1,000, and should be received by the deadline of 29th January 2016.

 You will be required to provide your name, affiliation and qualifications, the name and email address of a referee, and a statement explaining in no more than c. 300 words (2000 characters) how much you are applying for, exactly why you need it and the relevance and importance of the proposed trip.
