Dr. M. Aylwin Cotton Foundation Awards
The Dr. M. Aylwin Cotton Foundation invites applications for Fellowship Awards for studies in the archaeology, architecture, history, language, and art of the Mediterranean.
In this context the word “Mediterranean” is used without geographical limitations.
Fellowships will normally be up to one year’s duration, commencing on September 1 following the award, and may in special cases be renewable.
Save in exceptional cases the sums awarded will each have a maximum value of £10,000, and will be expected to cover the costs of accommodation, travel, photography, photocopying, and all other expenses relating to the work for which the fellowship is awarded.
These will be awarded to persons engaged in personal academic research, normally showing a level of achievement comparable to a PhD (although no formal academic qualifications will be necessary).
Fellowships will not be granted for the furtherance of doctoral research.
Fellowships, grants, and other awards are open to men and women of all nationalities.
These are available towards the cost of publication of academic research already completed or imminently available for publication.
The closing date for the receipt of applications and letter from Referees for awards for the academic session 2008/2009 is 28th FEBRUARY 2008. Decisions on awards will be made by 31st May 2008.
Fellowship Awards will be paid in a single lump sum on or after 1st September following the award.
The Trustees wish it to be known that no further awards will be made in respect of academic sessions following 2008/2009.
