Following last year's call for applications to the BFE Fieldwork Grant Awards scheme, we are delighted to announce that a total of four fieldwork grants have been awarded for 2018. Once again, the standard of applications was extremely high.
As an official nominating body, the BFE proposed candidates to the panels for the REF 2021 at the end of 2017, and the panel appointments have now been announced.
Deadline for Nominations: Friday 16 March 2018
