Department of Greek & Latin


The Stephen Instone Travel Award

Every year, current students are invited to apply for the Stephen Instone Travel Fund which awards bursaries to undergraduates for travel to ancient sites in the Mediterranean.
Students in receipt of awards send in postcards from their travels and write reports about their activities abroad, all of which are then put on display in the department before being passed on to Stephen's family.
The application deadline for the fund is the end of February each year. The award is open to applications from UG and PGT students.
