The Honor Frost Archive Annual Visiting Fellowship Award offers the opportunity to visit the Maritime Archaeology Special Collections at the University of Southampton Library to conduct research on a topic centred on the Honor Frost Archive. The Fellowship is awarded annually and aims to raise awareness of the HF Archive within the archaeological research community, to facilitate new research into the Southampton Maritime Archaeology Special Collections, and to disseminate the research outcomes to academic and non-academic audiences. This is an open call and applications are invited all year round.
Successful candidates can spend up to two months, or the part-time equivalent, at the Maritime Archaeology Special Collections, researching the Honor Frost Archive.
The Visiting Fellow will receive:
- A grant of £5,000 to cover travel, accommodation and living expenses,
- Access to the Special Collections, and to staff with specialist knowledge of the collection in question when available.
