Applications are invited for a fully-funded studentship from the Honor Frost Foundation.
The Foundation's mission is to promote the advancement and research, including publication, of maritime archaeology with particular focus on the eastern Mediterranean. The Foundation is keen to support educational opportunities for students from the primary regions where Honor worked and is supporting a fully funded scholarship in Maritime Archaeology for students from Cyprus, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria to attend the University of Southampton commencing in September 2019.
The scholarship is primarily for study at MA/MSc level with the possibility of further funding for PhD, but may also be offered at PhD level if there are suitable candidates. Due to funding restrictions, this award is only available to students from Cyprus, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria.
Students will be registered at the University of Southampton and supervised by experts in the field of Maritime Archaeology.
The successful candidate must demonstrate a genuine interest in maritime archaeology and would be expected to develop the subject in their home country upon their return.
The successful candidate will also be required to submit annual reports on their progress to the Honor Frost Foundation and contribute towards the Foundation’s activities during the duration of their studies, including supporting the annual lecture.

The MA scholarship is tenable for one year, commencing September 2019, at an annual stipend of £15,000 with an additional travel fund of £1000, which can be drawn as required during your study. Tuition fees will also be paid directly to the University at the appropriate fee rate. There may also be the opportunity to continue to PhD, fully funded, for a further 3 years on completion of the MA/MSc.
The PhD scholarship requires: a good 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) and a Masters in either archaeology or a related discipline. You must be a citizen of Cyprus, Lebanon, Egypt or Syria.
