Grants and Prizes

We play an active role in supporting an array of research initiatives into the history and archaeology of Wales and the Marches. We list our research grants and prizes below.


Research Fund

The Research Fund exists for the encouragement of research within the field of the Association’s interest. Its scope includes travel, fieldwork, excavation and associated scientific services, historical research, and other appropriate forms of assistance. Awards are normally in the region of £500 to £2000 and are restricted to projects connected directly or indirectly with Wales and the Marches. Awarded annually, deadline 15th October.



Student Bursary

Our student bursary fund, established by a legacy from our late member Olwen May Davies of Bangor, provides small grants (up to £200) to defray the costs of travel and/or conference attendance related to research on the objectives of the Association. These bursaries are available to members of the society who are full- or part-time registered graduate or postgraduate students. Funds are given on a rolling basis.



Dissertation Prize

The Gwobr Archaeoleg Cambrian Archaeological Award is given to an undergraduate or Master’s level dissertation which makes the most original contribution to the archaeology and/or history of Wales and the Marches. Awarded annually, deadline 30th November.




G. T. Clark Prize

The Association administers the G. T. Clark Trust Fund, set up to commemorate George Thomas Clark, the nineteenth-century antiquary. The G. T. Clark Prizes are awarded for the most distinguished published contributions to the study of the history and antiquities of Wales and the Marches during the previous quinquennium.
