The Society is pleased to offer two scholarships of £1500 for registered postgraduate or postdoctoral students working on Herculaneum or topics pertinent to the understanding of Herculaneum. One award will be for papyrology and the other may be on any topic.  The successful applicants will be expected to provide images and a report for the Society's Newsletter and a podcast for the website, and if possible address a meeting of the Society. They will also be expected to join the Society. Half the scholarship will be paid upon award, and the other half upon providing proof of satisfactory progress in the work for which it was awarded. To apply, send a brief CV and up to two sides of A4 outlining your project to by 5:00 pm British summer time on Tuesday, 23 April 2019. Your project outline should also include an account of how the money will be spent and dates of the work to be undertaken (which must be completed by summer 2020). A letter of support should be sent separately by a referee by the same deadline. The results will be announced within three weeks of the closing date.
