The following documents on matters of general interest
with regard to Higher Education policy, funding, or other
significant developments have recently been received
within the University Offices. If any member of
Congregation would wish to have a copy of any of these
documents, he or she should apply to the office of the
Deputy Registrar (Administration) (telephone: (2)70003).

CVCP Higher Education Pay and Prices Index
January–July 1997. (This is the third issue of the
new Higher Education Pay and Prices Index (HEPPI), which
has replaced the Universities Pay and Prices Index
(UPPI). The index illustrates the real changes in
university costs and has risen by 3.3 per cent over the
six months to July 1997 compared with a rise of 2 per
cent in the RPI. The corresponding annual figures are 3.8
per cent and 3.1 per cent respectively. The rise in HEPPI
is largely attributable to pay rises relating to two
years, many of which were paid in this period.)

    Jowett and Phizackerley Senior
    Scholarships

    Balliol College proposes to elect Jowett and Phizackerley
    Senior Scholars. The scholarships, which will be awarded solely on
    the basis of academic merit, are open to graduates currently working
    in Oxford who are reading, or intend to read, for a D.Phil. It is
    expected that applicants will normally be in at least their first
    year and not later than their second year of graduate work. The
    Jowett Scholarships are tenable in any subject. The Phizackerley
    Scholarship is
    reserved for those in Medicine and closely related subjects.

    The scholarships will be awarded for a maximum of two years. Scholars
    will take up their award on 1 October 1998.

    The value of the scholarships is £1,550 a year. In addition,
    scholars will receive free meals, and they will be
    entitled to dine twice a week at high table. The scholars will be
    entitled to accommodation (for which they will be charged) until they
    have completed their university residence requirements. This
    accommodation will be in the Graduate Centre at Holywell Manor.

    There will also be Jowett Exhibitions, up to the value of £1,000
    each, for candidates who are runners-up for the Jowett Senior
    Scholarships. These will be restricted to members of Balliol College.
    The exhibitions are tenable for one year only.

    dealing with correspondence and other
    matters with which the President is concerned. A sense of discretion
    is necessary. Word-processing, shorthand, excellent typing, and high

    Wadham College


    Keeley Visiting Fellowship

    Wadham College proposes to elect a distinguished visitor to Oxford to
    a Visiting Fellowship for all or part of the
    academic year 1998–9. The fellowship, which is for a scholar who
    will already have full financial support, is
    intended to provide the visitor with a social base where
    he or she can meet academics with a broader range of
    interests than might otherwise be likely within a single faculty or
    department. Nominations are invited from
    faculties and departments, and from individual senior members of the
    University.

    The Visiting Fellow will be a member of the college's
    senior common room and will be entitled to lunch and dinner free of
    charge at common table. Some secretarial help will be available from
    the fellows' secretary, and a small allowance will be available for
    certain academic
    expenses. Accommodation is not provided. The fellowship is open to
    scholars in any subject.

    Nominations should be sent to the Warden's Secretary, Wadham College,
    Oxford OX1 3PN, before 2 February. These should include a
    curriculum vitae, a list of key
    publications, and a brief statement by the candidate
    of the work to be pursued in Oxford. This should be
    supported by a letter of recommendation from the
    nominator and by two other references from outside
    Oxford. Candidates should please ask their referees to send their
    references direct to the Warden's Secretary by the same date. The
    college expects to make an election on 11 March.
