The Boise Trust Fund invites Oxford University-based researchers and graduate students to apply for small research awards of up £3,000.
The Boise Trust Fund was established by Charles Watson Boise to support research on the antiquity and evolutionary origin of modern Homo sapiens and other hominins, with particular emphasis on the continued exploration of appropriate sites in Africa, and on the early migration of Palaeolithic communities. All applications should be in this field of research.
Applications for amounts of up to £3,000 will be considered but it should be noted that the total funding available is limited and the preference is usually to fund a number of projects rather than a single application for the maximum amount.
Proposals may include support for: fieldwork, laboratory work and/or archival research and should include how you would address the restrictions/difficulties posed by Covid-19. The awards are not intended to support conference attendance.
Closing date for applications: Friday, 30 April 2021
