Applications are invited for either a FIRST scholarship or, for GACUK scholars, a FURTHER scholarship for postgraduate studies in Greek Archaeology in a university in the United Kingdom. The scholarships are intended to cover all or part of the cost of tuition fees and under certain circumstances, to supplement living expenses. Successful applicants who have no fees obligations may receive part of or a whole scholarship to cover costs relevant to their research and sojourn in the UK. Subject to the conditions of eligibility, listed below, being met, a GACUK scholarship may be awarded for up to three consecutive academic sessions.

Eligibility for a FIRST scholarship is limited either to citizens of the Hellenic Democracy and of the Republic of Cyprus or to those of Hellenic ethnicity (Greek and Cypriot Greek).Applicants for a FIRST scholarship must hold, from any reputable university, either a first degree with First Class Honours or equivalent (such as “Arista”) or a second, postgraduate degree with Distinction or equivalent. At least one of these degrees should be relevant to Greek Archaeology. In addition applicants must have either a firm offer of acceptance from a university in the UK to enrol as full-time or part-time postgraduate students in Greek Archaeology or be already enrolled as such. End of term or semester progress reports on the academic work of successful applicants will be required and a scholarship may be suspended if the reports are unsatisfactory.

Eligibility for a FURTHER scholarship is limited to applicants who had already received a GACUK scholarship for the previous academic session, whose term or semester reports were deemed satisfactory and who are also in receipt of letters of support for continuation of studies from each of their supervisors.

In granting a FIRST or FURTHER scholarship, the Council of the GACUK will take into consideration the financial status of the applicant as well as any other scholarships, bursaries or financial aid packages to be granted or already granted to the applicant.

The decisions of the Council of the GACUK are final.
