The American Friends of Herculaneum (AFOH) are pleased to announce a competition for one or more research grants of up to a total of $2,000 available to graduate students and up to $1,000 to undergraduates, who may be facing financial difficulties as a result of the covid crisis. We invite applications from students whose work may be in any area that relates to Herculaneum: archaeology and archaeological science; heritage management; the environs; literature; history and reception; papyrology; and education concerning these subjects. Your work must have implications for Herculaneum specifically (i.e. not generally in the Bay of Naples).

An application shall consist of a letter describing the applicant’s research on Herculaneum and their particular research needs during the covid crisis, plus one letter of support from a professor or other supervisor. It is expected that awards will be followed by a brief written report. Recipients of these awards will be encouraged to contribute to Herculaneum Archaeology and/or to the American Friends of Herculaneum panel at an upcoming SCS/AIA meeting. Both letters should be addressed to Carol Mattusch, President of the American Friends of Herculaneum, at mattusch@gmu.edu , and delivered by 10 April 2021. Awards are projected to be announced by 1 May 2021
