Applications are considered for financial assistance towards the undertaking, completion or publication of work that relates to any of the general scholarly purposes of the Roman Society, i.e. to promote the study of the history, archaeology, literature and art of Italy and the Roman Empire, from the earliest times down to about A.D. 700. Grants usually range from £400 to £1,500.
In addition, postgraduate students may apply for small grants for visits to conferences and other research expenses. Grants for the organisation of conferences, colloquia and symposia will be made only in exceptional circumstances, though grants may be made to enable conference organizers to offer student bursaries.
Applications should be made using the application form or from the Secretary of the Society (email@example.com), and applicants may also include a letter in support of their application. Applicants should give a clear outline of the project and plans for publication (if relevant) and provide a detailed breakdown of the costs and any other financial assistance applied for.
Applications should be supported by two references. Both references must arrive before the deadline of 15th January and applications lacking one or both references will not be considered. With the allowable exception of applications from postgraduate students, references must come from outside the applicant’s institution and not be connected with the project for which funding is sought. Applications from Institutions, Societies and Summer School need not be accompanied by references.
Applications and references should be sent by 15 January in any year - to the Secretary, Dr F.K. Haarer, Roman Society, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU, or by email: office(at)romansociety.org
