Applications are invited for either a FIRST scholarship or, for GACUK scholars, a FURTHER scholarship for postgraduate studies in Greek Archaeology in a university in the United Kingdom. The scholarships are intended to cover all, or part of the cost of tuition fees and under certain circumstances, to supplement research expenses. Successful applicants who have no fees obligations may receive part of or a whole scholarship to cover costs relevant to their research and sojourn in the UK. Subject to the conditions of eligibility listed below being met, a scholarship may be awarded for up to three consecutive years for PhD/DPhil candidates or, normally, one year for MA/MSt candidates.
For a FIRST scholarship, eligibility is limited either to citizens of the Hellenic Democracy and of the Republic of Cyprus or to those of Hellenic ethnicity (Greek and Cypriot Greek).Applicants for a FIRST scholarship must hold, from any reputable university, either a first degree with First Class Honours or equivalent (such as “Arista”) or a second, postgraduate degree with Distinction or equivalent. At least one of these degrees should be relevant to Greek Archaeology. In addition, applicants must have either a firm offer of acceptance from a university in the UK to enroll as full-time or part-time postgraduate students in Greek Archaeology, or be already enrolled as such. End of term or semester progress reports on the academic work of recipients of a FIRST scholarship will be required and a scholarship may be suspended if the reports are unsatisfactory.
For a FURTHER scholarship, eligibility is limited to applicants who had already received a scholarship for the previous academic session, whose end of term or semester reports were deemed satisfactory and who are also in receipt of letters of support for continuation of studies from each of their supervisors.
In granting a FIRST or FURTHER scholarship, the GACUK Selection Working Party will take into consideration the financial status of the applicant, as well as any other scholarships, bursaries or financial aid packages to be granted or already granted to the applicant.
The decisions of the GACUK Selection Working Party are final.
