English Heritage is committed to widening access to, and understanding and enjoyment of, the historic environment. All projects funded through our ALSF Programme should, wherever possible, deliver these aims through programmes of outreach, education, interpretation and community involvement.

Joint Working & Partnership Funding
We encourage project proposals which promote partnership and joint working across different stakeholder groups and constituencies: the aggregates industry, local government, commercial contractors, the higher education and research sector, other environmental agencies, community groups and not-for-profit organisations, and the independent and voluntary sector.
The English Heritage ALSF Programme has no requirement for partnership funding but applications which bring partnership funding or some other resource contribution, and so lever-in additional resopurces for the historic environment, will be particularly welcomed. For eligible sources of partnership funding please see our Guidance Notes page.

We are happy to consider applications where joint funding is also being sought from English Nature and/or The Countryside Agency and/or CEFAS (for marine projects).

Strategic Initiatives and project development grants British Institute at Ankara Website Category I
Definition: Researchers, of whatever nationality, resident in the UK or working abroad for a UK academic institution, or researchers directing a project that is based formally and demonstrably in the UK.

Category II
Definition: Academics based in the countries in which the BIAA operates who are internationally recognised as operating within the British academic research community, whose projects are clearly recognised as British, where alternative sources of funding are problematic and where there are deep links between the project and researchers based in the UK. The research must explicitly benefit the interests of the BIAA and be seen to do so in the country concerned.

Category III
Definition: Long-term projects which are initially funded under category I or II, but where the researcher ceases to belong to that category during the life-time of the project (e.g. moves to a new job outside the UK).

Archaeology Grants Historic Scotland Website Most of the grants are for projects which rescue information in the face of unavoidable threats, or help to assess the threats to archaeological sites and landscapes. The commonest such threats are:
• coastal erosion and related natural processes;
• semi-natural processes such as rabbit damage orregeneration of woodland;
• gradual processes resulting from human activities, like the destruction of sites by agricultural ploughing.
Projects should be designed to increase public understanding and enjoyment. They must take account of the future of excavated structures after the fieldwork has been completed.
Archaeology grants can cover:
• fieldwork and its immediate reporting;
• rescue conservation of artefacts from the above work, although this is normally carried out through contracts between HS and commercial companies;
• specialists reports and laboratory analysis for material arising from the above work;
• publication of archaeological reports;
• sending of an archive of documents from the above work to RCAHMS;
• the disposal of finds to museums,
• exploration of a theme related to standing buildings or field-monuments, such as preservation of sites in wetlands;
• synthesis of projects funded by HS, including documentary research;
• publication of any archaeological, palaeoenvironmental, historical-architectural or cultural resource management work funded by HS; and of the excavations of deceased archaeologists.
• informing and educating the public about the archaeological work being undertaking;Deadline for the submissions of application forms to the teams is the last Friday of September.

How to apply for Grants

You should discuss your ideas with the HS Inspector whom you hope will support your application, and, particularly for projects involving fieldwork, you should get the (at least moral) support of the Local Authority archaeology service.

Marie-Curie Action for Early Stage Training of Researchers The Institute of Archaeology UCL Website All fellowships are aimed at training students to become academic researchers and teachers in material-science based archaeology. Fellows will be trained to use scientific instrumental methods for an archaeological research agenda, with particular emphasis being placed on using the Institute's facilities available in the Wolfson Archaeological Science Laboratory and the GIS Laboratory.

Funding is in accordance with EST rules and includes a monthly living allowance in excess of € 1,400, plus a monthly mobility allowance of € 500. In addition, a one-off travel allowance will be available, and a further allowance for fellows staying 12 months or more. A contribution to UCL fees is also likely to be part of the fellowship.

Application procedures
There is no set application form for these fellowships. However, all applicants will have to set out in writing (mail or email, including cv) their eligibility and their research plans and interests.

Applicants for the three-months fellowships should explain how this will benefit their training and research programme.

Applicants for the degree programmes need to apply separately to UCL for a place in one of the eligible programmes before applying for funding. The covering letter should contain the application for the Marie Curie funding and state how their planned research (in the case of MPhil/PhD fellowships) or their research interests and career plans (for Masters fellowships) match the aims of this particular EST action.

The deadline for applications for the 2006-2007 degree programmes is 30th June 2006, but applicants are encouraged to express their interest in EST funding before this date. Note that applications for funding will only be considered once the applicant has been offered a place in the academic programme by UCL.
For short-term visiting fellows, the application deadlines are 30th June 2006 and 15th December 2005.
Similar programmes will be running at least until 2007-2008.

Visiting Fellowships Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL) Website Visiting Fellowships are offered for postdoctoral research in the humanities and social sciences to be undertaken in the Levant (Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria).

The period of research must take place between 1 April 2006 and 30 June 2007, and commence before 31 March 2007. Established scholars can spend between 3 and 9 months attached to the British Institute in Amman or the Kenyon Institute in Jerusalem in order to undertake research.

Fellows may use the time to conduct primary research, develop important contacts in the region, give lectures, and write up results. Under the terms of the fellowship, CBRL will provide a return air fare from the UK, free accommodation and an allowance of £10 per day for food.

Salaries, research expenses, and teaching-replacement costs will not be covered by the award, but a fellowship may be held in conjunction with a BA or Research Council award that does cover such costs (such as a research fellowship or readership), so long as it does not also cover travel, food or accommodation.

CBRL Fellows will be entitled to make use of the research facilities available at the CBRL Institutes, including the library and (at normal CBRL rates) the office, IT, field equipment and lab facilities. At the discretion of the Director, for the duration of the fellowship, fellows will also be allocated such workspace as they may require to store the materials related to affiliated projects and to pursue their research.

Application: Please send a curriculum vitae, two letters of recommendation, and a description of the planned research, including dates proposed. Please enclose a covering letter clearly stating contact details, including an e-mail address, and the title and dates of your proposed research.

Applicants must be British or normally resident in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.

Deadline: Completed applications and references must be received by the London Office by 1 December 2005.

British Academy Research Development Awards (BARDAs) The British Academy Website The purpose of these awards is to enable established scholars to develop a significant research project. Applications are particularly encouraged from scholars who can demonstrate that they are developing an innovative line of research, with the potential to make a significant difference to their field and to their career profile. Priority will be given to applicants who have at least five years postdoctoral experience.

Applications for collaborative or individual research projects are equally welcome under this scheme. Applications from international groups of scholars are welcome, provided there is a UK-based scholar as lead applicant.

BARDAs provide a flexible package of support from which the applicant is free to choose which elements will best facilitate the successful achievement of a distinctive programme of research. Applicants may choose to focus their research effort over a concentrated bloc of time, or to spread their research effort, in shorter recurrent periods, over up to three years. Funds are available to facilitate initial project planning and development; to support the research expenses of an approved programme of activity; and to enable the advancement of research through workshops, or visits by or to partner scholars. Applicants may seek support for any combination of eligible activity and cost up to the overall limit of award. The Academy will assess applications equally on their merits, with no preference as to mode of enquiry.

Awards are not intended to support interchange between UK and overseas scholars where there is no planned programme of activity to meet a clearly specified research objective; nor are they intended to support attendance at open conferences organised by a third party or international organisation.

All applications should demonstrate that Academy funds are sought for a clearly defined, discrete piece of research, which will have an identifiable outcome on completion of the Academy-funded component of the project.

The BARDA scheme replaces the Larger Research Grants and Research Leave Fellowships schemes, which are no longer offered by the Academy.

Senior Research Fellowship/Thankyou Offering (one year and two year) The British Academy Website Research Leave Fellowships are tenable for two years, Senior Research Fellowships and the Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship for one year.

Application to both competitions in the same year, by completing both application forms, is welcomed by the Academy where applicants have well-planned timetables for each award.

Submitting an application for a Senior Research Fellowship will not damage an applicant's chances of an award of a Research Leave Fellowship if an application is also submitted for that award.

The 2-year Research Leave Fellowship may be more appropriate for a larger project or one which is at an earlier stage.

The 1 year award may be more appropriate for a more compact project or one which is already nearer to completion. It is not advisable to submit identical proposals for both competitions which do not distinguish between the timetable for what can be achieved in two years and in just one year.

Contact the Research Appointments Department for further information.

British Academy Wolfson Research Professorships The British Academy Website Thanks to the generosity of the Wolfson Foundation, the British Academy is able to offer the award of up to 4 Research Professorships to be taken up in the autumn of 2009. The purpose of these awards is to give an opportunity for extended research leave to a small number of the most outstanding established scholars to enable them to concentrate on a significant research programme, while freed from normal teaching and administrative commitments. Emphasis is also placed by the Academy and the Foundation on the importance of award-holders communicating their plans and results to a broad audience.

Candidates need not necessarily hold the title of Professor before applying, but suitable applicants will already have a significant track record of publication of works of distinction in their field, and have a major programme of research likely to enhance the discipline. The Academy takes no account of physical age, but eligible applicants will be in an established post from which they will not expect to retire during the course of the award, which is tenable for three years.

The awards will be made at a fixed value of £150,000 (£50,000pa for three years). Funding is expected to be used primarily to meet the costs of replacement teaching, with any balance available to the award-holder as research expenses. These awards are not covered under the Full Economic Costing (FEC) regime. No other directly incurred, directly allocated or indirect cost can be met by the British Academy or the Wolfson Foundation in connection with these awards. Institutions are not expected to complete a financial appendix to accompany applications made under the scheme.

There are no quotas for numbers of awards in the Humanities and the Social Sciences. The Academy is looking to make awards to the best scholars in any discipline within its remit.

Conference Support The British Academy Website The Academy launched a new Conference Support Scheme in 2007-08, designed to promote the dissemination of advanced research. Conference convenors may apply for any combination of the following: (a) financial assistance, whether for bringing key speakers to the UK (or other location if the event is to be held abroad), or for a wider range of expenses; (b) use of the British Academy as a venue; (c) organisational assistance from the Academy’s conference team; (d) subsequent publication of proceedings by the Academy. (Please note that applications will not be entertained for (d) alone.) This scheme also provides an opportunity for a conference to be adopted into the Academy’s own Events diary. The Academy welcomes applications for conferences held in collaboration with other organisations. Applications will not be considered for less than £1,000. The maximum award is £20,000. Conferences attracting the higher levels of support should be at least partly aimed at disseminating the results of research to a broader public, and the Academy particularly welcomes applications that show how public interest might be engaged in the topics discussed.

This scheme amalgamates the separate streams of support previously available under the British Conference Grants scheme, the Worldwide Congress Grants scheme, and the Academy’s Academic Meetings programme.

It should also confirm that the candidate, if accepted on the project, would be fully insured. Finally, a copy of the project risk assessment/health and safety guidelines should accompany the letter from the director.

The candidate should then send a copy of the directorÕs letter and risk assessment, with a covering letter to Dr Helen Cockle, Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU by 15 May. The covering letter should outline the applicantÕs reasons for wishing to apply, their other sources of finance, and the amount requested. It should be clear from the letter exactly what costs the award is expected to cover. Candidates are advised that in the event of strong demand for these bursaries, it may not be possible to award grants to cover more than one week at a time.

Grants and Bursaries for the Training of Craftsmen and Craftsmanship York Foundation for Conservation and Craftsmanship Website Applications are invited by the York Foundation for Conservation and Craftsmanship for bursaries to assist the training of Craftsmen and conservators. Bursaries of up to £1,500 each are available to further the knowledge and skills of craftsmen and conservators at various stages of their careers. This can include CPD courses. Bursaries of up to £3,000 are offered to encourage and assist established craftsmen and conservators to take on a new apprentice/trainee.

The total sum available is £12,000, made up of £8000 from the Foundation’s own Bursary Fund, £2,000 funded by the York Company of Merchant Taylors, and £1,000 each from the Freemasons and from the Historic Houses Association (Yorkshire Region) in association with Coutts Bank. While the Merchant Taylors award is restricted to young people with links to York and its surrounding area, the other awards have no such restriction (though if all other things prove equal, preference will be given to an applicant living, training or employed in the Yorkshire Region).

Applications will be judged on merit and need, and there are no restrictions on who may apply. Employers may apply on behalf of employees. Bursaries will not generally be awarded to assist the funding of a student’s undergraduate degree or equivalent course. In the case of individual applications preference will be given to those seeking advanced skills or training in crafts/specialities in short supply.

The Trustees are particularly keen to facilitate the taking on of new trainees/apprentices. This would include someone starting out or part way through a three year apprenticeship, or a person not yet in the trade/profession but who, having had some basic skills training or relevant experience, needs further skills training to qualify. Applications for such bursaries would normally be expected from the potential employer, and could be used in a variety of ways to reduce the employer’s costs, e.g. those related to the introductory training demanded by legal requirements. That should not preclude applications from employers for other purposes, nor from potential trainees who have identified a committed potential employer.

In 2008 seven awards were made ranging in value from £500 to £2,000. The winners included a self-employed carpenter, a firm of decorative plasterers, and conservators of books and armour. A full list of 2008 and previous year’s winners can be found here.

Application forms can be downloaded here or may be obtained from the Secretary of the Foundation
