The Knossos Donated Fund of the British School at Athens, with the generous support of anonymous donations, promotes research into prehistoric Knossos (i.e. before 776 BC) by making grants towards the expenses of research projects. Those that involve the study and publication of unpublished excavations at Knossos, including those of Sir Arthur Evans, will be especially welcome. The Fund does not support current fieldwork. Grants are unlikely to exceed £800 in any year.
Recipients of awards must have been admitted as members of the School before receiving their grants; if applicable, they should first obtain permission to study the material in the Stratigraphical Museum at Knossos using the BSA online form at https://www.bsa.ac.uk/application-to-study-at-the-stratigraphical-museum-in-knossos/; and are normally expected to stay in the Knossos Research Centre. The deadline for applications is 31 December of each year. Please send an application not exceeding two pages (using font size 11 and margins of 1.5cm minimum), under the following headings to the School Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org):
1. Name(s) and address(es) of applicant(s)
2. Title of project
3. Description of project (maximum 500 words)
4. Budget (outline of total expenditure)
5. Sum applied for from the Knossos Donated Fund, and for what specific purpose
6. Relevant grants (already received/pending) for this or related work
7. Plans for publication.
Successful applicants must submit a short report (maximum 2 pages of text, using font size 11 and margins of 1.5 cm minimum) by the end of the following December. The report must also include a brief financial statement (or table) on how the grant was spent, using the same headings as (or headings similar to) those employed in the application.
