Additional Information: Funding going on an Archaeological Dig

Posted on

Tools of the Trade: ArchaeologyAn add on to the previous post. If you can’t afford to go on a dig without some funding help, here are some ideas.

Several ways to get funding :)  easiest if you are a university student.

Options there include:

International travel grants for undergraduates

Department higher degree funding and postgraduate research grants for postgraduates

Specialist grants from universities worldwide for specific dig locations. For instance, I got one from the near eastern department of an Australian university this year when I don’t even go to that university. Some of these you don’t even have to be a student to apply for. Most you do. Just research a bit.

Many governments also have international travel grants for people to come over and volunteer on digs. I know for instance that Iceland even gives grants to Australian and New Zealanders for some projects.

Volunteer organisations often also have an archaeology section where they contribute some funds for you. I know at the moment that there are organisations working in Romania, Vietnam and Cambodia which are doing this. Check out the projects-abroad website.

Best options and easiest by far though are international undergrad travel grants and projects-abroad.
