Support Us

The BIAA, a registered charity, is internationally renowned for its work in supporting, enabling and encouraging world-class research in Turkey and the Black Sea region in the fields of history, archaeology and related social sciences. However, growing pressure on all traditional sources of academic funding means we rely increasingly on grants and donations to secure the future, with all gifts, large and small, making a difference.

There are two main ways that you can contribute to the Institute. 

 1. Donations 

Contributions that allow the Society to decide where your money can be put to best use are most welcome; but you may like your gift to be put towards to a particular area of work;  for example:

  • specific archaeological fieldwork and research projects;
  • the BIAA’s unique library of publications on archaeology and related subjects, including Ottoman, Byzantine and Islamic studies as well as contemporary Turkey;
  • expansion and protection of the BIAA’s unique archaeological research collections;
  • grants and scholarships for UK and overseas students;
  • improvements to the hostel used by visiting researchers.

2. Leave a Gift in your Will

The future of the BIAA depends increasingly upon the support of those who are passionate about our work. One way in which you can help secure this future is by leaving the BIAA a gift in your Will. For more information, please click here.
