NEAF Grant Information

NEAF Grant Guidelines

  • A cover letter (you may use one application/letter to apply for all the grants offered).
  • An up to date curriculum vitae.
  • A statement of your proposed research project.
  • A detailed budget and itinerary indicating where you plan to travel. Also indicate how many days you will spend at each destination and the costs involved. These costs should include airfares, accommodation, meals, transport and any other associated expenditure you may incur.
  • If part of your overseas trip involves research at an institution (eg museum, university) or other organisation you must provide written documentation that you have obtained permission to undertake that research.
  • Upon returning from your trip all grant recipients should forward original receipts to NEAF. If you are travelling, copies from your travel diary can verify some of the amounts, as we appreciate it isn't always easy to get receipts.
  • You are required to provide a short report (with one or two pictures if possible) for archival purposes and publication in the NEAF Bulletin.
  • All previous grant recipients must have provided both receipts and reports to be considered eligible for further grants.
  • Grants are not available for the purposes of solely wishing to attend conferences (unless presenting at the conference) or archaeological excavations unless these activities form part of a significantly wider research and study programme.
