The Elizabeth Catling Memorial Fund for Archaeological Draughtmanship

Open: Yes

The Elizabeth Catling Memorial Fund for Archaeological Draughtsmanship, created by a gift of Elizabeth Catling’s family, supports an area of the School’s work in which she regularly shared. Its aim is to encourage excellence in archaeological drawing, including the preparation of finished drawings for publication. It is hoped that awards will help individuals to improve their standards of draughtsmanship and also enable the preparation of a larger number of drawings, of higher quality, than might otherwise have been possible. Applications, to be submitted by 22nd April, should specify the name(s) of the proposed draughtsman/men. Individual applicants must show that drawings are an essential part of their research. Furthermore, although not a precondition, it is hoped that they may be draughtsmen themselves. Applications from project directors, who may also apply during the course of a field campaign, are limited to unexpected expenses that are not provided for in the project’s budget, such as extra maintenance costs to enable a draughtsman to draw unforeseen material and finds. The grant is unlikely to be more than £500. (The Fund does not support printing expenses, or site drawings such as plans and sections). Candidates should submit letters of application (no longer than two pages) to the School Administrator, Mrs Tania Gerousi (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) which should include a statement of the purposes of the application, a budget and timetable for the proposed work, and the name and address of a referee whom the awarding panel may consult. Applications may be made for, but are not limited to, grants towards the maintenance costs of longer stays at museums and other study centres so as to achieve work that would not otherwise have been attempted. Recipients of awards must submit a short report on the use of the grant by 30th April the following year.
