John and Bryony Coles Bursary
(Student Travel Award)
This bursary was established in 1998, by John
and Bryony Coles, to enable student members of the Prehistoric Society
to travel away from their home country or region to study and work at
prehistoric archaeology. Two awards of between £200 and £300
each are usually given each year.
The purpose of the bursary is to permit the recipients
to travel abroad (i.e. outside their countries of residence and registered
study) to gain a better understanding of prehistoric archaeology, through
the active study of archaeology, whether by taking part in excavations,
surveys or other fieldwork, by working in museums, or by travelling
to visit sites. Attendance at conferences would not be an eligible activity
unless it was an integral part of such a programme. For the purposes
of this award the UK and the Republic of Ireland shall be considered
as one region, and applicants from either of these countries must travel
outside that region.
Eligibility: Applicants must be registered students
of archaeology (either part or full time) in the later stages of undergraduate
study or in the early years of postgraduate study, or other equivalent
status, without restriction on age. All applicants must provide proof
of their student status (i.e. a letter from their institution). Student
cards will not be accepted.
All applications and references must be received by
