The Royal Archaeological Institute was founded in 1844. Its patron is Her Majesty The Queen.
The Institute's interests span all aspects of the archaeological, architectural and landscape history of the British Isles. Membership is open to all with an interest in these areas.
The RAI Research Fund provides awards up to £5,000 each year.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Applicants may apply for themselves or on behalf of local groups.
- Applications will be considered for:
- Archaeological fieldwork
- Aspects of excavation and post-excavation research
- Architectural recording and analysis
- Artifact and art-historical research
- Applications for overseas work with some relevance to the British Isles will also be considered.
- Grants will only be made towards salaries, consultancy fees or publication costs where these elements form a relatively small proportion of the total cost of the project.
- This restriction does not include specialist costs.
- Any one project may attract a maximum of three grants from the Institute.
- Where a project involves excavation or other fieldwork, one of the three possible grants will normally be reserved for post-excavation or post-fieldwork activities directed towards final publication.
- Preference will normally be given to projects within the British Isles which have significant part-time/amateur involvement.
- The RAI is keen to encourage small projects and the involvement of part-time and amateur archaeologists, architectural historians and historians, though such people are strongly advised to seek professional advice and provide at least one academic reference.
- Preference may also be given to those who are members. You can become a member here.
- Grants will not be made for funding:
- undergraduate or post-graduate work, or
- the cost of food.
- Grant applications for projects also in receipt of English Heritage, Historic Scotland or Cadw funding will not normally be considered.
- Documentary research per se will NOT be eligible, but can be considered as an element of the other categories.
