The Ochs Scholarship was established in 1994 from a bequest by Maud Lillian Ochs, and is awarded annually by the British Archaeological Association for research projects which fall within the Association’s fields of interest. These are defined as the study of archaeology, art and architecture from the Roman period until the nineteenth century, principally within Europe. The scholarships are intended to provide post-graduate students striving to write up theses with late stage funding, and help independent researchers complete projects.
Applications are invited from students who are completing theses for post-graduate degrees and who have access to no other sources of funding. It must be demonstrated that the award of an Ochs scholarship will enable a thesis to be completed satisfactorily within the period of the Scholarship. Applications where a substantial amount of fieldwork remains to be done are unlikely to succeed. A Scholarship is awarded for one year only and is not renewable.
Applications are also invited from scholars unattached to universities, for research projects conducted either privately or under the umbrella of a larger organisation, such as a local history or archaeology society. Research and Publication projects must be capable of completion within the period of the Scholarship, which is for one year from the nominated starting date. Scholarships are awarded annually on the basis of applications submitted by 1 February. The next closing date for applications is 1 February, 2018.
Applications should be submitted to John McNeil, 18 Stanley Road, Oxford OX4 1QZ, or as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
