Each year the Palestine Exploration Fund offers grants for travel and research related to topics connected with its founding aims.
The Executive Committee of the Fund has decided that all future applicants for Fund grants should be or become subscribers to the Palestine Exploration Fund. Find out more about becoming a PEF member from our membership page.
The deadline for applications is 31 January of each year. Grants are awarded by the end of March in the same year.
Grants Update for 2014
In 2014 the Fund will once again be in a position to award some more substantial research grants as well as travel grants for students.
Application Form and Procedure
The following forms and notes are available to download here.
PEF grant notes (2013)
Please read the notes before filling out the application form. It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange for their application and references to be submitted to the PEF by the deadline. Those references which do not reach the PEF by this date (either by post, e-mail or fax), may not be considered by the committee.
Copies of the submitted form will be circulated to all members of the Executive Committee before the meeting at which the applications will be considered. If you wish, you may send with the summary a more detailed estimate of costs, the objectives of your project, and past seasons' work.
Please address your application to:
The Grants Manager,
Palestine Exploration Fund,
2 Hinde Mews,
London W1U 2AA
Alternatively, you can e-mail the form as an attachment to the Executive Secretary by the following address: ExecSec@pef.org.uk. Referees may also send their reference forms by e-mail.
Grants are paid to successful applicants shortly before the money is to be used. The ultimate deadline for claiming a grant award is the end of the October of that year. If the grant is taken up, but the recipient is unable to carry out the project as scheduled, recipients must contact the Grants Manager as soon as possible, and return the cheque.
A condition of the award of grants by the PEF is the submission of a short report of at least 500 words within two months of the completion of the project. Each report will appear in the 'Reports' section of PEQ and may also be used on the web site.
