The King and Thubron Memorial Awards
from CBA Yorkshire
A grant of £200 is awarded biennially at our annual general meeting through the King and Thubron Memorial Award schemes. These are open to any archaeological project undertaken in Yorkshire by amateur or student groups or individuals.  Information on making applications for the award is distributed with AGM papers in the years it is awarded.
Additional grants may be made for other worthwhile projects at the discretion of the Management Committee.

The availability of grants in any one year will be contingent upon the availability of funds. Grants will not normally exceed £1000 in any one year. and Grants will be available to individuals, archaeological societies, groups or units (including professional units) providing the applicants are members of the CBA or CBA Yorkshire before receiving a grant.
