AGCA 2018 Grant Program for MA, Ph.D. theses in Early Christian, Medieval & Byzantine Archaeology

The Working Group on Christian Archeology for the Study of Late Antiquity, Early Medieval and Byzantine Culture (AGCA) is offering funding of 2,000 euros for the year 2018 to support scientific theses on work areas of the AGCA. 
The funds serve to promote and support scientific qualification work (master theses, dissertations) in the field of early Christian, early medieval and Byzantine archeology.
Preference will be given to members of the AGCA and especially to junior researchers.
Bachelor's theses are excluded from the grant program. Travel expenses for site study, and library or archival research can be supported.
Applications for grants may be submitted by 30 April 2018. They are to be addressed to the Senior Chair of the AGCA (address below).
The AGCA Board of Management will decide on the applications in May 2018. Accordingly, funding cannot be disbursed until June 2018 at the earliest. If the AGCA board accepts several applications, the maximum amount of EUR 2,000 will be distributed among several projects.
Other program details:
The award will be subject to the financial situation of the AGCA.  If applicants apply for or receive grants for the same project from other sources, this must be communicated to the AGCA when making the application.
After completion of the funded project, the treasurer of the AGCA must be sent a short report on the work done and a budget statement.
