Fieldwork / Research Grants
The Fieldwork Committee is happy to receive requests for grants for fieldwork/research in Kent.
In view of the restricted funds at the Society’s disposal, it may be necessary to apportion what money is available for research among a number of applicants, resulting in each receiving less than the amount requested. Careful consideration will be given to the respective merits of each application.
Each application will be considered by the Fieldwork Committee, which will make recommendations to the Council.
It is a condition of granting any money for research that a summary of the results must be submitted promptly for publication in Archaeologia Cantiana, and the final report must be submitted without undue delay for inclusion in Archaeologia Cantiana or any other publication approved by the Council. the fulfilment or otherwise of this condition will influence consideration of any further applications for assistance.
Applications should be made to the Hon. General Secretary up to two weeks before a Committee Meeting. (usually at the end of June, September and January). See the Diary Section for dates of Meeting.
