How to Apply

Limited funding opportunities are available to students who wish to participate in our project each June and July.  Undergraduate and Post-Graduate students at Queen’s University or at the University of Waterloo may apply to participate in our research team.

BA students whom we accept receive university credits, and training at Herstmonceux in archaeology, conservation, and archival research.  They also receive a funding package to defer some or all of the costs associated with their training (including, potentially, tuition, airfare to/from the UK, meals, and accommodations).  BA students who wish to participate in our project must first register for the BISC Field School in British Archaeology through Queen’s University.  After completing the registration through Queen’s, please apply for funding.

MA and PhD candidates who wish to participate in our project may also apply for a funded leadership opportunity on our summer dig site.  Successful MA and PhD applicants will receive mentoring in archaeology, conservation, and archives, and will participate in some aspect of our original research with an eye toward authoring or co-authoring an article, delivering a conference paper, or making some other original contribution to scholarship.
