It is important for aspiring researchers to be able to see where they and their research fit in the wider archaeological picture. Conferences and events are often a great way to meet people doing similiar or complementary work but can often be expensive for students to attend.
As part of our commitment to fostering new research, ScARF has a certain number of bursaries available that are designed to enable attendance at workshops and conferences, relevant to Scottish archaeological research. A list of current and past bursaries can be seen below.
