The Orkney Archaeology Society provides small grants for archaeological research projects. The amount available for grants each year is variable so we assess each application as it comes in.
Grants are allocated on a quarterly basis, and applications must be received by the deadline of the 31st March, 30th June, 30th September and 31st December in order to be considered for that quarter.
