Six bursaries for PhD candidates

The restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic have significantly
affected the career development opportunities of current PhD students, by
effectively removing more than a year of academic networking time. It is crucial
for academic activities to continue to be organised to offer science
communication and networking opportunities in physical, blended or online
formats, and to support the active participation of PhD students. Thanks to the
support from the Carlsberg Foundation, we can offer six bursaries to facilitate
six outstanding PhD students to attend The Connected Past 2021 in person
(restrictions permitting).

PhD course

This year, PhD candidates attending the conference will also have the
opportunity to attend a free PhD course at Aarhus University awarding 1.5 ECTS.
The PhD course will take place in a blended format on the two days preceding the
conference: 27-28 September 2021. The course will give you practical skills with
network research in archaeology and history, and will share the experiences of a
number of practitioners. Applicants need to apply separately for the conference
and PhD course. For more information and registration:
