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 BSA whose current research in Greek lands lies within any area covered by the BSA’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 an application by May 15th, and by the same date a letter of reference should also be received. A link to the application portal will be available on this page soon.
Recipients of the awards will be announced at the end of June. The Bursary (or Bursaries) will be tenable immediately and should be taken up within 12 months. 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.
If you are interested in applying, please provide your email address and a link to an online form will be emailed to you.
