Annual Fieldwork Bursary

The Foundation offers an Annual Fieldwork Bursary. We are offering funding of between €500 – €1000 per applicant to participate in a maritime archaeological fieldwork project in order to gain more field experience. Eligible applicants should be nationals of Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus or Egypt.

The bursary will go towards covering most, if not all, of the costs (airfare/ travel, visa and participant fee, loss of income) associated with the fieldwork. Up to three bursaries will be offered annually to applicants from the region. 

The successful applicant must be:

  • a national from Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, or Egypt
  • either a student currently undertaking MA or PhD studies, or have completed their MA or PhD studies within the last five years
  • be able to demonstrate a desire to pursue a career in maritime archaeology or related field, in the region
  • competent in English and the language of the fieldwork project
  • successful applicants will be expected to write a brief blog (in English) with accompanying photographs about their experiences for the HFF Facebook page during the fieldwork, and produce a short report for the HFF web site on completion of the fieldwork.

The Foundation retains the right to select the successful applicant. Selection will be made on the merit of the individual candidate and application, the reputation of the chosen fieldwork project, and the perceived benefit that this will bring to the candidate’s experience and future career in maritime archaeology in the region. The Foundation’s decision in this respect is final.
