Grants for the study and conservation of ancient mosaics

http://www.asprom.org/about/grants.html

Terms and Conditions

  • Grants up to a maximum value of £500 are available, as and when the Association’s funds permit, to support costs of travel and/or publication (e.g. photographs) relating to the study of ancient mosaics and/or work on the conservation or preservation of mosaics.
  • Applicants should be ASPROM members and doing research for a degree and/or for the publication of a book or article on ancient mosaics, or participating in a project to conserve or preserve mosaics.
  • Applications for retrospective funding will not be eligible. Successful applicants will receive grants prior to the proposed expenditure and will be required to submit receipts afterwards. It is expected that grants will normally be spent within a year of their receipt. Any money not used is to be returned to ASPROM.
  • Applicants must ask their referees to write directly to the Secretary by the deadline.
  • Successful applicants will be expected to submit a short paper on their research for the Association’s journal Mosaic or to give a paper at one of ASPROM’s symposia. Any publication should acknowledge the financial contribution from ASPROM.
  • The deadline for applications is 31 December each year, for consideration by a sub-committee whose recommendations will be considered by the ASPROM Executive Committee in the spring. Successful candidates will be notified as soon as possible after that.
