The Honor Frost Foundation website is temporarily closed as a result of changes in personnel, however details about our current available grants, scholarships and bursaries can be found below.
The Honor Frost Foundation was founded in 2011. Honor Frost was an early pioneer in the field of underwater archaeology. When Honor died in 2010 she left the bulk of her estate to establish the foundation to promote marine and maritime archaeology with a focus on the eastern Mediterranean.
The Trustees have been reviewing the activities of the Foundation, as it’s now been some years since its launch. After a period of reflection, we feel the time has come to consolidate what we are doing, to develop some larger projects, and to concentrate our focus on the countries in the eastern Mediterranean where there are the greatest needs.
The Foundation’s Small Grant Awards are offered twice annually for amounts of up to £10,000. Below are links to the application and reporting forms.
