BSA Hector and Elizabeth Doctoral Award

Closing Date: 24/02/2024

Scholarship award for UK-based doctoral scholars studying any aspect of Greece and the Greek world.

The British School at Athens (BSA) is an educational charity established in 1886. It now forms part of the British Academy’s network of international research institutes which sustains and supports British research overseas. The School’s function is to promote research of international excellence in all disciplines pertaining to Greek lands, and in all periods to modern times.

The Hector and Elizabeth Catling Doctoral award offers one scholarship for doctoral scholars studying any aspect of Greece and the Greek world as defined in the BSA’s mission statement.

Applicants should have a well-defined plan of their intended activities in Greece, including a visit to at least one archaeological site or museum. Activities covered by this award might involve (but are not restricted to) using the BSA library, accessing the BSA collections, visiting museums and sites, or attending conferences and events. Additionally, the researcher will have the opportunity to establish connections in Athens, engaging with both the Greek academic community and various foreign schools and institutes, with the support of the Assistant Director and Director.

Preference may be given to candidates who have not visited Greece before, and who have no access to other sources of funding.
