N.B. The grants process is currently under review and is expected to be completed by Autumn 2022. New forms and guidance will be added to the website in time for the January 2023 round of grants.
The Prehistoric Society offers a range of grant and award schemes to members (and in the case of the Conference Fund, to non-members) to support further study into areas of prehistoric research.
Grants are made on an annual basis and application forms can be found on the website. Awards are competitive and based on merit and are assessed by a Grants committee comprising members of the Executive Committee, utilising a numerical score. Awards are then made in order of score, until all the available funds have been allocated. Where equal merit is achieved, consideration is given to distribute grants between early career and experienced researchers. Applications must detail the full nature of the costs and recipients of those costs. Awards must be reported on; these are checked and where work is not completed to a satisfactory standard grants will be reclaimed.
For more details on each scheme, and to access applications forms, see the list below.
If you wish to submit an application for any of our grants or awards, please ensure you have read our Submitting an application guidance first.
