SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications
from members of the University for grants towards the costs of
research in economic history. Applications will be considered
from undergraduates, graduate students, and members of academic
staff, and may related to research into the economic history of
any period or country.

Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information
about the general nature of their research to establish that it
falls within the field of economic history; and (b)
specify the precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which
a grant is requested. They should also give the name of one
referee who might be consulted by the committee.

It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be
made for sums of up to £250, though this may on occasion be
exceeded. Retrospective grants will be made only in exceptional
circumstances.

The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The
closing date for the first round is Monday of the third week of
Hilary Term, and for the second round Monday of the third week
of Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs E.A.
