Hugh Last and Donald Atkinson Funds Committee
Applications are considered for financial assistance towards the undertaking, completion or publication of work that relates to any of the general scholarly purposes of the Roman Society, ie to promote the study of the history, archaeology, literature and art of Italy and the Roman Empire, from the earliest times down to about 700 AD. Grants usually range from Â£400 to Â£1,500.
In addition, postgraduate students may apply for small grants for visits to conferences and other research expenses. Grants for the organisation of conferences, colloquia and symposia will be made only in exceptional circumstances.
Application forms are available from the Secretary of the Society, but applications in the form of letters are also welcome. Applications, together with two references, should be completed in typescript and sent - to arrive before 15 January in any year. It is the responsibility of applicants to arrange for their references to reach the Society by the same date; the absence of references may adversely affect the Committee's view of an application. Referees should - with the exception of applications from postgraduate students - come from outside the applicantâ€™s institution and not be connected with the project for which funding is sought.
