    KENNETH KIRKWOOD MEMORIAL FUND

    A new fund has been established to commemorate the contribution
    of Professor Kenneth Kirkwood to African education and St
    Antony's College. Professor Kirkwood was Rhodes Professor of Race
    Relations at the University from 1955 to 1986 and co-ordinator
    of African Studies at St Antony's College. The fund is managed
    by the African Educational Trust.

    Applications are invited from postgraduate students in the
    Humanities, Social Sciences, and Geography registered at UK
    universities from Southern Africa (including South Africa,
    Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia,
    Mozambique, and Malawi). Preference will be given to students
    registered at St Antony's College. The fund is initially to be
    devoted to cases of hardship or unexpected financial difficulties
    for students who are completing postgraduate degrees.

    St Antony's students should apply to Polly Friedhoff, Development
    Office, St Antony's College. Others should apply to the Director,
    Africa Educational Trust, 38 King Street, London WC2E 8JS.
    Applications should include a short statement about research and
    progress, a reference from a supervisor, and an explanation of
    the need for funding. Initial grants are likely to be in the
    region of £500. The first closing date is 30 May 2001 for
    awards to be held in the academic year 2001–2. Enquiries
    about later applications should be made to the Africa Educational
    Trust.

    Should sufficient money be raised, this fund will be devoted to
    larger scholarships and any suggestions concerning fund-raising
    would be welcomed.
