This supplement to the University Gazette serves two
functions: it reproduces those
notices
printed in Supplement (2) to No. 4411 (entitled `Notices of
University
Scholarships, Fellowships, Studentships, Exhibitions, Grants, and
Prizes')
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.



ABBOTT'S BURSARIES

The Board of Management of the Abbott Fund invites recommendations by
Friday, 29 November 1996, from colleges and other societies,
for the
award of bursaries to members of the University who are:

(a) children (including orphan children) of the clergy of
the
Church of England;

(b) reading for (i) a first degree, or (ii) the Degree of
Bachelor
of Medicine or an equivalent degree, or (iii) a second Honour School,
of the
University; and

(c) standing in need of financial assistance to enable
them to
obtain the full benefit of a university education.

Eligible members of the University may wish to note that in 1995-6
bursaries
of up to £500 were awarded.

The board is prepared to consider recommendations also on behalf of
present or
future members of the University who intend to embark in the next
academic
year on one of the courses designated at (b) above, provided
the
criteria at (a) and (c) are satisfied.

Eligible candidates are advised to notify their Senior Tutors of
their
interest in being considered for an Abbott's bursary.

ACCESS FUNDS

Access Funds are allocated to the University, by the DFEE via the
HEFCE.
Eligibility is restricted to full-time undergraduates and
postgraduates who
face financial difficulty and who are (broadly speaking)
either `home'
students (i.e. those who have been `ordinarily resident' in the
United
Kingdom, Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man throughout the three
year period
preceding the commencement of their present course of study)
or the
children of EC migrant workers who are employed in the United
Kingdom. The
precise definition of eligibility is given in notes of guidance to
which
reference is made below.

Grants are assessed on the basis of expected income and expenditure
in the
academic year 1996–7. Intending applicants who are eligible to
receive
loan support from the SLC should note that, to be considered for an
Access
Fund grant, they must apply to the SLC for their full loan
entitlement.

Intending applicants who are also eligible to receive loan support
from the
SLC should note that, to be considered for an Access Fund grant, they
must
apply to the SLC for their full loan entitlement.

Application forms are available from colleges, and must be
completed and
returned with additional documentation as specified on the form by
Friday,
15 November 1996
.

It is not yet known what the size of grants awarded in 1996–7
will be.
As a guide, however, about 500 grants ranging in value from £100
to about
£2,350 were awarded in 1995–6.

For more information about Access Funds please refer to the notes
attached
to the application forms, or, if clarification of the notes is
required
contact the Secretary to the Access Funds Committee (telephone:
(2)70193).

HARDSHIP FUND

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
unforeseeable
hardship. The committee aims to help where unpredictable misfortunes
have
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
termly
meetings. Application forms are available from colleges, and must be
completed
and returned to the Secretary of the Committee, as specified on the
forms, by
Friday of fifth week of Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, or by Friday of
second
week in Trinity Term (i.e. in 1996–7, 15 November 1996, 21
February
1997, 9 May 1997
).

PIRIE-REID SCHOLARSHIPS

Applications are invited for up to two Pirie-Reid Scholarships
tenable at the
University of Oxford by graduates (including persons expecting to
graduate in
1997) who intend in October 1997 to commence working for a degree or
diploma.

Preference will be given to candidates applying from other
universities,
i.e. not already matriculated at Oxford, and to those domiciled or
educated in
Scotland. Candidates not fulfilling these criteria are unlikely to be
successful.

The scholarships, which are to be awarded to persons wishing to
begin a course of study in Oxford who would otherwise be
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 1996–7 are £1,710 for undergraduates and
£5,400 for
postgraduates). It will be renewable from year to year, subject to
satisfactory progress and continuance of approved full-time study.

Candidates for a Pirie-Reid Scholarship are expected to have
applied for
admission to the University in the usual way.

Application forms may be obtained from Mrs J. Brown, University
Offices,
Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD. The closing date for application
is 1
May 1997
.

PRENDERGAST BEQUEST

Funds from the Prendergast Bequest are available to men and women
born in the
Republic of Ireland whose parents are citizens of the Republic of
Ireland, to
assist them to read for a degree, either graduate or undergraduate
(or in some
cases for a diploma) at the University of Oxford.

Applications are invited for grants for the academic year
1997–8 from
students either already on course or who will be commencing their
studies at
Oxford in October 1997. The grants are means-tested, and the amounts
for the
year 1997–8 are expected to be in the region of
£500–£2,000.

Applicants who intend to follow a postgraduate course must have
been
accepted by both a college and the faculty board concerned before a
grant can
be awarded, while applications from candidates who wish to read for a
second
honour school should be endorsed by the college.

Further information and application forms are available from the
Secretary
to the Board of Management for the Prendergast Bequest, University
Offices,
Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD. The closing date for applications
is 31
July 1997
