MAGS 2021 Awards

As the MAGS 2021 was virtual due to the circumstances, no bursaries were given. However, the organizing committee of MAGS will award scholarships supported by Honor Frost Foundation and the Institute of Mediterranean Archaeology (ARKAIA, AMU, France) for the best paper and poster presentation. The scholarships will consist of a financial support up to 500 euros each to attend an International Conference on Maritime Archaeology.
