Award Description

CBRL Travel Grants are offered to enable individuals undertaking study or research in the humanities and social sciences at Doctoral or Postdoctoral level to travel in the countries of the Levant (Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Cyprus and Syria) in connection with their work. 

The aims of the Travel Grant programme are to give students the opportunity to travel in the region, to encourage the development of new research, and to support minor research projects (particularly for postgraduate degrees), which must be done in the region.

Value of Award

The maximum level of a Travel Grant is £800.

Travel Grants are available for the direct costs of travel and maintenance away from home. They are not available for personal maintenance at home or for attending conferences.

  • is a CBRL member (you may apply for membership when you submit your application for the award) AND
  • is of British nationality OR
