CBA Challenge Funding
The CBA is very pleased to announce that CBA Challenge Funding is now open to applications for the remainder of this financial year and (in due course) for at least the next two years.

Since 1997 CBA Challenge Funding has been an important source for small grants of up to ?750 to help voluntary groups, societies and individuals carry out original and innovative research in their local area. Such projects have ranged from initiatives led by schools and small charities through to those organised by voluntary archaeology groups, and have covered a wide range of activities from the procurement of specialist analysis such as radio carbon dating, through to the purchase of specific equipment to help a project achieve its aims.

CBA Director Mike Heyworth said:

"It is really good news that we are able to offer CBA Challenge Funding to support research within the voluntary sector. Often the grants >we are able to offer make a key contribution to the successful delivery of a project, and can also help to attract additional financial >support from other sources. We are looking forward to supporting some very exciting projects over the next few years!"

Information about how to apply, as well as the application form, is available at the CBA Challenge Funding page ( . The CBA also lists other grants and awards open to archaeologists and the voluntary sector listed at

CBA Challenge Funding is kindly supported by a grant from English Heritage, and hence the scheme currently runs in England only. It is hoped to expand the scheme to cover Wales in the coming months, and Historic Scotland is willing to consider direct funding for projects in Scotland.
