Important information for applicants
The grants awarded in previous years are in Grants given.
The next deadline for applications will be the end of Monday 21 September 2020, and the meeting of CoLAT to decide on grants will be in December 2020.
The CoLAT Grant Application form, the Guidelines and other forms will be placed on this page of the website in May 2020. Make sure you download the new Guidelines from May onwards, as they will have changed. Previous application forms must not be used.
CoLAT prefers to concentrate on educational or research activities, within or in addition to existing research frameworks; but assistance with survey and excavation projects may be requested.
Applicants must ask one referee for a reference for an application. This should be somebody in any walk of life who can give an accurate and fair opinion on your project. You must send the Referee Report Form to the referee, and ask that person to send the reference, in confidence, to the Secretary before the submission date for your application. If the reference does not arrive in time, your application will not be considered. The reference is confidential and will not be divulged by CoLAT. It is up to the applicant to ensure that the reference arrives at CoLAT on time.
Claiming the grant
A CoLAT grant is payable by sending an invoice to CoLAT at the end of the work, with documented proof that the work has been done, either a draft text or a project report.
In the documents section below is a good example of a recent project report which was attached to the claim form; a project on Roman lamps in London. We have removed the financial details of the project which were attached. This can be used as a model.
If applicants require further guidance, questions can be directed to the CoLAT Secretary:
