13th International Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, Oxford 2007

Epigraphy and the Historical Sciences

University of Oxford 2 – 7 September 2007


The Organising Committee for the Congress has been able to make a significant number of bursary awards, both from its own resources and through the generosity of sponsors, to cover the costs of registration and residence and half-board at St Edmund Hall during the Congress. It is anticipated that a limited number of additional bursary awards will be made in December 2007. Further awards may be made if additional funds become available.

The following two categories of bursaries, limited respectively to younger Greek scholars and to members of the British Epigraphy Society, remain open to application.

Bursaries for Greek Scholars

The generosity of the Onassis Foundation and Mrs. Matrona & Mr. Nicholas Egon has made it possible to offer a limited number of bursaries (up to 12) for scholars of Greek nationality to support their attendance at the Epigraphical Congress. The bursaries will cover the registration fee for the Congress and seven nights' accommodation with half-board (breakfast and lunch) at St Edmund Hall. Applications from suitable candidates should be made through the registration page of the Congress Website.

BES Student Bursaries

The British Epigraphy Society is offering a limited number of bursaries of up to £100 to home student members of the society to put towards the registration fee for the XIII International Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy (CIEGL).

To apply, please write to the society's secretary, Dr Peter Haarer, with a statement of 250 words outlining how attendance at CIEGL will benefit your studies, and arrange for your academic supervisor to forward separately a brief statement of support. Applications and references should arrive no later than 31 March 2007 for consideration at a final meeting in early May.

Home students wishing to compete for a bursary who are not already members of the Society must submit a completed membership form with their statement, and will be asked to pay subscription fees (£6.00 or £10.00) for the year 2006/7 as a condition of accepting any award.
