This supplement to the University Gazette serves two
functions: it reproduces those
printed in Supplement (2) to No. 4411 (entitled `Notices of
Scholarships, Fellowships, Studentships, Exhibitions, Grants, and
which particularly relate to hardship-related funds; and it provides
an improved index for those notices. It is being
circulated in
greater numbers than ordinary Gazette editions to JCRs and
MCRs and
similar bodies, so as to bring to the attention of Junior Members the
availability of various funds.

The Committee on Student Hardship administers funds - partly
allocated from
the University's general funds, and partly derived from specific
funds - for
`the relief of student hardship'.

Applications are considered from both undergraduates and
graduates, and
awards (grants and loans) are made principally on the grounds of
hardship. The committee aims to help where unpredictable misfortunes
occurred, rather than to top-up inadequate funding. The size of
awards in
recent years has varied widely, ranging from £100 to several
thousands of
pounds. The committee will consider applications for assistance at
meetings. Application forms are available from colleges, and must be

forms, by
Friday of fifth week of Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, or by Friday of
week in Trinity Term (i.e. in 1996–7, 15 November 1996, 21
