Achill Archaeological Field School Scholarship 2018

For the first time in 2018, the Achill Archaeological Field School will offer two $2000 scholarships for any of our 6-week or 12-week accredited excavation courses (Excavations and Recording 1, 2, or 7). The bursaries, which can be offset against course fees, aim to support students in their field school journey of discovery.


  • Students must have applied and completed enrollment for one of our 6 week or 12 week courses before the scholarship deadline of April 30 2018.
  • N.B. There are a limited amount of places on each course, once the courses are full we cannot accept more applicants. We therefore advise students not to wait until the April 30 deadline to apply for courses.


  • Applicants for the scholarship should submit a 500 word statement outlining why they wish to study at the Achill Archaeological Field School accompanied by a CV.
