November Application Round Only

All archaeological fieldwork, including excavations and surveys, and research in museums requires official permission from the General Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Museums.  All applicants looking for support of work of this sort are advised to consult the BIAA before making an application for funds.  Currently, no new permits are being issued to overseas researchers by the Turkish authorities.  However, the BIAA is prepared to offer support to applications to carry out archaeological research as part of Turkish or non-Turkish directed projects which already hold permits.  Please contact the Director, Dr. Lutgarde Vandeput for advice for the large fieldwork grants only.
