The Catling Bursary was established by subscription in 1989 in honour of Hector and Elizabeth Catling on the occasion of Dr Catling’s retirement after 18 years as Director of the British School at Athens.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide modest financial assistance to members of the School whose current research in Greek lands lies within any area covered by the School’s mission statement. The Bursary is not intended for publication costs, nor can it be awarded to an excavation or field survey team. The Bursary will be awarded, to a maximum amount of £500, as follows: to assist in travel and maintenance costs incurred in fieldwork; to pay for the use of scientific or other specialized equipment in or outside a laboratory in Greece or Cyprus; to buy necessary supplies.
Candidates should submit a letter of application by February 15th each year to the Assistant Director, Dr. Chryssanthi Papadopoulou (email@example.com). Letters should not be longer than two pages and should include a statement of the purposes of the application, the amount requested from the Fund and a budget and timetable for the proposed work, together with the names and addresses of two referees (who should be asked to send a reference separately by February 15th). Recipients of the awards will be decided by the School’s Studentships Committee and will be announced at the end of March. The Bursary (or Bursaries) will be tenable immediately and should be taken up within the 12 months from March to the following February. Recipients are required to submit a short report to the Assistant Director on completion of the project. Reapplication for the following year is not permitted.
