The Inverness Field Club Bursary

The Inverness Field Club Bursary is available to people living in Scotland. It is awarded for original research into any subject appertaining to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland that the Inverness Field Club Council considers to lie within the traditional interest of the Club, as follows:

  • Archaeology
  • Architecture
  • Country Life
  • Dark Age and Medieval History
  • Geography and Environment
  • Natural Sciences
  • People and Places
  • Scottish History
  • Social and Economic History

The Bursary is worth £1,000 and is normally paid in two instalments. 

Applicants will be required to submit a written case for consideration, a career history and the names of two referees - one of whom should have a good knowledge of the applicant's academic ability and competence to carry out the research. Applicants should be prepared to offer themselves for interview if required to do so. The Council expects each project to be completed within two years and the recipient of the Award to give a lecture to members of the Inverness Field Club within this time limit, together with fully sourced notes.
