2018 Travel Grant Appeal

2018 Travel Grant Appeal

Every year, CBRL awards postgraduate travel grants to develop the next generation of researchers. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to travel to the Levant for a research project, you’ll know the value of such an experience.

We are urgently seeking funds to continue the CBRL Travel Grant scheme next year. Our target is to fund five young researchers and to do this, we need to raise £4,000. Your support in helping us reach this target and continue this research programme is essential - donations of all sizes will be gratefully received.

Since 2016, changes and restrictions to CBRL’s core British Academy funding mean that this cannot be used towards postgraduate projects. Instead, over the past two years, CBRL has continued this important part of its activity thanks to the generosity of our members and friends.

By supporting young researchers with a travel grant of up to £800 we can offer students the opportunity to develop field trip investigation for research of either a self-contained project, or for research that is part of a larger project.

If you would like to fund the full value of a travel grant with a donation of £800, we would be delighted to name this scholarship as you would wish.  If you are a UK tax payer, you will be eligible to gift-aid your donation, allowing CBRL to benefit from a further 25% of the value of your donation.

You can donate online via our website here, by sending a cheque made out to the ‘Council for British Research in the Levant’, or by completing and returning the form that can be downloaded here.To gift-aid a postal donation, please complete and return the gift-aid declaration in section 2 of this form.

Please return all postal donations to: CBRL, 10 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH.

If you wish to know more, please contact CBRL’s Development Officer, Maggie McNulty by phone on 0207 969 5330 or email or please feel free to contact any of our Trustees.
