The scholarships, which are to be awarded to persons wishing

prevented by lack of funds, will cover university and college
fees and provide a grant for maintenance, subject to assessment
of other sources of income (maintenance grants for 2001--2 are
£7,000 for postgraduate students). They will be renewable
from year to year, subject to satisfactory progress and
continuance of approved full-time study.

Application forms for the Pirie-Reid Scholarships may be
obtained from Mrs J. Brown, Life and Environmental Sciences
Divisional Office, 2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB (telephone:
Oxford (2)82464, e-mail: judith.brown@admin.ox.ac.uk).

NATIONAL TEACHING FELLOWSHIP SCHEME

The Higher Education Funding Council for England is again
inviting institutions to nominate candidates for the National
Teaching Fellowship Scheme. The scheme is intended to `celebrate
excellence in teaching by recognising individuals who are
outstanding as teachers and promoters of learning'.

The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme was run for the first
time in 2000. This year, as in previous years, a total of twenty
awards to the value of £50,000 each will be made. Awards are
intended to enable fellowship holders to carry out a project
related to teaching and learning during their fellowship year.
Initial selection of nominees is to be carried out by the
institution. The Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic) is accordingly
now inviting applications from individuals who wish to be
considered for nomination to the award. The University's nominee
will be selected in accordance with the criteria specified by the
NTFS. Submissions will be considered by a panel appointed by the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee. The closing date for
individual submissions to the university panel is Friday, 18
January.

Information about the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme,
including past winners of the award and the selection criteria,
may be found on the scheme's Web site (http://ntfs.ilt.ac.uk).
A copy of the leaflet providing information about the scheme may
be obtained from the Institute for the Advancement of University
Learning (telephone: (2)86808, e-mail:
services@learning.ox.ac.uk). Advice on preparing submissions will
appear under `News' on the Institute's Web site
(www.learning.ox.ac.uk) from Monday of ninth week of Michaelmas
Term. Completed submissions, prepared in the format specified by
the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme, should be sent in hard
copy to the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic), University Offices,
Wellington Square by, at the latest, Friday, 18 January.
