2020 Excavation bursaries

Three bursary places are available for the 2020 excavations at Vindolanda. To qualify you must be between the ages of 16 and 25 and in full-time education. The bursaries cover the costs for;

  • Two weeks Full-board accommodation at the Hedley centre
  • Excavation fees
  • Membership to the Friends of Vindolanda for 2020

2020 will be the fifth year that the scheme has run and this is possible thanks to the kind generosity of several donors to the scheme. 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. The Vindolanda Trust would like to thank the Friends of Vindolanda, former and current excavators and The Henfrey Charitable Trust for their continued support for this scheme.  

If you wish to apply please fill in the application form bellow by the 14th of October at 12 noon and send it back to Vindolanda. The winners of the 2020 bursaries will be notified on the 28th of October.
