Thanks to our generous Donors, to the Friends of Vindolanda and to the Henfrey Charitable Trust, we are once again able to offer 3 young students the possibility to join the Vindolanda excavation in period 10, from the 1st of August to the 12th August 2022.

To qualify for a Vindolanda bursary for the 2022 excavations you must be between the ages of 16 and 25 and in full-time education. The bursaries cover the costs for:

  • Two weeks bed and breakfast accommodation at the Hedley centre
  • Excavation fees
  • Membership to the Friends of Vindolanda for 2022

Please note that while packed lunch will be provided and will be covered by the bursary, dinner will be on a self-catered basis. Access to a kitchen area will be provided.

2022 will be the sixth year that the scheme has run. The scheme was started by those who have previously excavated at the site and benefited from the experience so that others could do the same. 

To apply for this bursary please fill out and submit the form below, no later than 4th October. 6 shortlisted applicants will be invited for a Zoom interview, which will take place online in the week commencing 11th October. The 3 successful applicants will be notified by the 25th October.
