WHAT WE DO NOT FUND

Grants from the Kemet Klub cannot fund further or higher education, university fees, course books, student living expenses or unpaid internships.

Team members of the Kemet Klub and their relatives and partners are not eligible for our grants.

 
CRITERIA

Research grants will be assessed according to their contribution to scholarship in Egyptology, their academic rigour, and the relevance and need for the research in the specific area described.

Practice grants should demonstrate how the skills and experience obtained will contribute to professional development and, ultimately, to the public understanding of Egyptology.

For all grants, the demonstrable financial need of the applicant as well as the availability of other grants to support the project or activity applied for will be considered.
