SOCIETY FOR THE PROMOTION OF HELLENIC STUDIES
The Dover Fund, set up in honour of Sir Kenneth Dover, is administered by the Hellenic Society. Its purposes are to further the study of the history of the Greek language in any period from the Bronze Age to the 15th century AD and to further the edition and exegesis of Greek texts, including papyri and inscriptions, from any period within those same limits.
Grants will be made for such purposes as books, photography (including microfilm and Xeroxing), and towards the costs of visits to libraries, museums and sites. The sums awarded will vary according to the needs of the applicant, but most grants will be in the range of £50 – £250; larger grants may be made from time to time at the discretion of the awards committee. Grants will be made to currently registered research students, and, within the first five years of their appointment, to lecturers, teaching fellows, research fellows, post-doctoral fellows, and research assistants. Application forms may be obtained from the Secretary, Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU.
Applications must be received by 14 February of the year in which the grant is sought.

THOMAS WIEDEMANN MEMORIAL FUND
Travel Grants for Classics Postgraduates
Grants from the Thomas Wiedemann Memorial Fund are available to assist with the costs of visits from within the UK to UK universities, museums or libraries related to actual or planned research activities. Any student taking a taught or research postgraduate course related to the ancient world at any UK university is eligible to apply. Grants will be made mainly for the costs of travel, though in some cases assistance may also be given with accommodation and subsistence costs. Where possible, a contribution should also be sought from a student’s own institution. The trustees are particularly keen to support attendance by individuals or groups at seminars or conferences. However, in view of the large number of postgraduates attending and the availability of bursaries, grants for attendance at the Classical Association AGM will be made only in exceptional cases. Grants from the fund are not available for travel outside the UK. Further information on the fundand its grants, and a on-line grant application form are available.
