ACCESS FUNDS

Access Funds are allocated to the University, by the DfE 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 1995–6.

Application forms are available from colleges, and must be
completed and
returned with additional documentation as specified on the form by
Friday,
10 November 1995
.

It is not yet known what the size of grants awarded in
1995–6 will
be. As a guide, however, about 500 grants ranging in value from
£100 to
£2,000 were awarded in 1994–5.

For more information about Access Funds please refer to the notes
attached
to the application forms.

ARNOLD, BRYCE, AND READ GRANTS (MODERN
HISTORY)
1996–7

Grants may be made to assist in meeting travel, publication, and
other
expenses incidental to the pursuit of a definite piece of historical
investigation, to members of the University who are pursuing a course
of
full-time study. This does not apply to Ancient History, for which
support may
be obtained from the Craven Committee.

Applications will be considered together at the end of Trinity
Term.
Application forms may be obtained from

the Secretary to the Board of Management of the Arnold, Bryce,
and Read
Funds, History Faculty Library, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BD, and
should be
returned to the Secretary to the Board of Management by Friday of the
fourth
week of Trinity Term. The applicants are responsible for requesting
their
referees to supply letters of recommendation, which the referees
should send
directly to the Secretary of the Board of Management by 17 May 1996.

Applications from those reading BA courses will be considered
only in the
most exceptional circumstances, and in the allocation of the monies
available
priority will always be given to applications from those engaged in
graduate
research.

(Please note that no further grants will be made for expenses
falling due
in 1995–6.)

ASTOR TRAVEL FUND

The Board of Management of the Astor Travel Fund gives notice that it
is
prepared to consider applications from members of the academic staff
of the
University for grants to enable them to visit laboratories,
hospitals,
libraries, and similar institutions in the United States and thus
enhance
their research and teaching efforts. This fund is not intended for
conference
attendance, but can be used to encourage other travel and subsistence
on the
occasion of a conference visit. Application forms may be obtained
from the
Secretary of the Board of Management of the Astor Travel Fund,
University
Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone: (2)70193) to
whom
completed application forms should be returned by Friday of the
third week
of each term
(i.e. in 1995–6: 27 October 1995, 2 February
1996, 10
May 1996). Applicants should ask one referee (normally a senior
member of the
applicant's department or faculty) to write in confidence to the
secretary of
the board of management. It should be noted that in general grants
from the
fund are intended to assist with travel and subsistence within the
United
States, and not with the cost of transatlantic travel. As a guide,
the maximum
grant awarded in recent years has been £300. Priority will be
given to
applicants who have not had grants from the fund in the two years
preceeding
their application. Retrospective grants will be made only in
exceptional
circumstances.

The board of management is also prepared to consider applications
for
modest grants to enable members of the University's academic staff to
invite
distinguished scholars and scientists from the United States to visit
the
University in order to lecture and to carry out research. It is
normally
expected that such visitors should contribute to established research
programmes. Applicants, who should submit a brief note of their
proposals by
the date set out above, are asked to note that grants for such visits
are
normally intended to assist with travel and subsistence expenses
incurred
within the United Kingdom rather than transatlantic travel costs; and
it would
normally be expected that they should arrange for visitors to be
accommodated
by the University at academic rates.

grants for
any purpose which will promote the study of the History of the
British Empire
and Commonwealth in the University of Oxford. In exercise of this
power, the
Board will consider applications from students working for an
advanced degree
and senior members in this field for small grants. In the
case of
junior members the grants are normally intended to enable them

(b) to complete a course of research which would
otherwise have

considered
by them to be of exceptional merit, provided that this is normally
carried out
in Oxford.

Applications from junior members of the University who are
pursuing a

available,
with notes of guidance, from the Secretary to the Board of Management

of the Beit Fund, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford

references reach the Secretary to the Board of Management by the
closing date.
Short-listed applicants will be required to attend for interview in
May or
June.

Grants to senior members are intended principally for travel
connected
with their research projects. Letters of application should indicate
the
purpose and dates of travel as well as details of other funding
secured or
pending. Applications should normally be made on the same timetable
as that
for junior members.

£400 to be
devoted to the expenses of residence abroad in cases where such
residence is a
requirement of the terms of the award. In the event of a candidate
elected to
one of these awards failing to obtain or not being eligible for a
State
Studentship, the Craven Committee will have competence, at its
discretion, to
pay to such a candidate an additional sum for each year that he holds
his
award. In the case of the Craven Fellow, the Derby Scholar, and the
Pelham
Student, the Craven Committee may also agree to refund expenses
incurred in
the reasonable discharge of the obligations of the award in so far as

indicate
the study which, in the event of their being elected, they would
propose to
undertake. They will not thereby bind themselves, if elected, to
pursue the
particular subjects suggested at the time of application, nor will
the Craven
Committee necessarily accept without modification the subjects
proposed by the
successful candidates. Candidates will be asked to produce a paper
(c.5,000 words) written by them on any subject connected
with
Greek or Latin Literature, History, or Archaeology.

All holders of these awards are required to produce evidence from

CYRIL FOSTER AND RELATED FUNDS FOR
INTERNATIONAL
RELATIONS

1. The Managers of the Cyril Foster and related
funds will
consider requests from members of the University (M.Litt. and D.Phil.
students, and senior members) undertaking research in international
relations
for modest grants
towards travel and related expenses, and, exceptionally, for other
purposes.
The funds are:

(a) The Cyril Foster Fund: this is intended
`for the
promotion of international peace and the prevention of future wars'.

(b) Other funds: these, which are strictly
limited, are
available for the promotion of research in international relations.

2. The Managers will in addition make an annual
Maurice Latey Award `to assist travel for research by
postgraduate
students in the fields of politics or international relations working
on
aspects of democracy, freedom, and religion'. Suitable applications
for grants
under 1. above will automatically be considered for this award.
Additional
applications are also invited from postgraduate students at British
or
overseas universities wishing to use the Latey Archive in the
Bodleian
Library.

3. Applications for grants under 1. and 2. are
not
normally entertained from visiting scholars, from students with
probationary
status, from students for the M.St. or M.Phil. degree, or from
undergraduates.
Requests should be made before the expenses are incurred. Attendance
at an
international conference will not in itself normally be accepted as a
sufficient reason for a grant.

Applications should be made on a form available from the Secretary
to the
Managers of the Cyril Foster and
Related Funds (Mrs M. Lyall), Centre for International Studies,
Social Studies
Faculty Centre, George Street, Oxford OX1 2RL, and should be

applicants
should make clear how these relate to the terms of reference of the
various
funds.

Applicants other than senior members are asked to name one
referee,
normally their supervisor, who should be requested to send in a
reference
directly to the Secretary to the Managers of the Cyril Foster and
Related

GRANTS FROM THE COMMITTEE FOR GRADUATE
STUDIES

Grants for special research expenses

The Committee for Graduate Studies is prepared to consider
applications from
graduate students for small grants towards:

(a) expenses incurred in travelling in the course of
furthering
their research, but not for attendance at schools or
courses;

(b) any special expenses incurred during
research which
would not have been expected when the course commenced (for example,
the cost
of unusual photographic work but not the cost of having a
thesis
typed, photocopied, and bound, unless some abnormal expenditure is
involved,
and not for equipment, including computers and software).

Students who hold State awards should apply in the first instance
for the
additional sums which are available to them under State award
schemes.

Applicants are expected to make application to their college and
department or the boards of management of trust funds under the aegis
of the
faculties concerned. The Committee is likely to look with more favour
on
applications which have received support from these sources.

The Committee will not entertain applications connected with
extended and
very expensive programmes of fieldwork unless it can be shown that
the bulk of
the funding required has already been raised, or is about to be
raised, from
other sources. It will expect to see evidence that the predictable
costs of
such fieldwork were taken into account when the research was
undertaken.

Grants will not normally be made to candidates for the M.St.,
M.Phil./B.Phil. degrees or for the M.Sc. degree by coursework or to
candidates
for postgraduate diplomas.

The committee will not make grants for attendance at conferences
unless
such attendance is directly connected to the applicant's research
degree and
the applicant has been invited to present work at the conference.

Application forms are available from either the Applications
Secretary,
Committee for Graduate Studies, University Offices, Wellington
Square, Oxford
OX1 2JD, or college offices. The form should be completed in
typescript or
black ink, and the original must be returned to the Graduate Studies
Office
(colleges may require copies).

The committee meets to consider applications in the ninth
week of each
term
and completed applications should be submitted by the end
of the
seventh week. Grants will not normally be made in respect of
applications
submitted after the expenses have been incurred. Applications for
grants
towards expenses which will be incurred during a vacation should be
made in
the preceding term.

ILCHESTER FUND TRAVEL GRANTS

The Curators of the Taylor Institution give notice that they are able
each
year to consider applications for grants (not normally of a value of
more than
£250 each) from the Ilchester Fund to assist with the costs of
travel for
the purposes of study and research in subjects connected with the
Slavonic
Languages or Literature, or the History of the Slavonic Nations. The
Curators
wish to emphasise the need for an historical element in projects
which are not
primarily in the fields of Slavonic Languages or Literature.

It should also be noted that the Curators will not make grants
towards the
costs of attendance at language courses, and that the fact that an
applicant
has chosen to study in one of the countries concerned will not in
itself
qualify his work for support from the fund.

Those eligible to apply under the terms of this notice are
members of the
university academic and library staff (in respect of travel for work
for which
they are employed by the University) and students for Oxford
postgraduate
degrees and diplomas (in respect of travel for work for the Oxford
degree or
diploma concerned).

The Curators may take into account any other possible sources of
financial
support available to applicants.

Applications, which should be submitted on a form obtainable
from the
Secretary of the Taylor Institution, 37 Wellington Square, Oxford
OX1 2JF,
should be returned to him by Friday of the third week of Hilary
Term
—2 February 1996.

No applicant will be given a decision before the meeting of the
Curators
on the Thursday of the seventh week of that term unless it can be
shown to
their satisfaction that one is needed by an earlier date. Owing to
the demands
on the fund, it may not be possible for the Curators to consider
applications
received after the Friday of the third week of that term, even if the
income
in the fund has proved sufficient that academic year until that date.

LOCKEY BEQUEST

The Committee for the Administration of the Lockey Bequest considers
applications for grants for attendance at overseas scientific
conferences by
senior members. (Applications may be considered from postdoctoral
research
workers, etc. who are not members of Congregation.)

In addition to the Lockey Bequest, the Committee administers the
travel
funds of the Faculties of Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences,
Psychological Studies, and Physiological Sciences. Applicants from
these
faculties should send their applications, on the standard form, to
the
Secretary of the Lockey Committee, University Offices, Wellington
Square,
Oxford OX1 2JD, by the end of the sixth week of each term.
Applicants
from other faculties may apply in the same way for grants from the
Lockey
Bequest alone, but will be expected when appropriate to apply first
to their
own faculty board. Forms are obtainable from science department
offices, and
from the University Offices ((2)70213).

The committee requests that applications be made in good time. It
does not
consider late applications (i.e. those not received in time for
consideration
at the end of the term preceding the travel) but may in exceptional
circumstances consider applications retrospectively. Where several
people
from Oxford propose to attend the same conference, they should submit
applications so that the committee can consider them all at the same
meeting
(normally the meeting at the end of Hilary Term for conferences to be
held
during the following summer).

In general the committee meets only a proportion of expenses and
applicants are expected to apply for other financial support. In
1995–6
the maximum values of grants awarded will be as follows: to
Europe
£250, to North America £500, to elsewhere £700; a
further
£100 may be awarded for travel to Australia, Japan, and South
America. In
addition, no applicant is granted more than £700 during any
period of
four years; this will be calculated inclusive of grants made by
faculty boards
for purposes within the scope of the Lockey Bequest. The above
figures are
liable to alteration depending on the state of the funds at the
committee's
disposal and on the number of applicants. There should be no
expectation that
awards will be made at these maximum rates. Grants are not made for
travel
within the United Kingdom.

Disabled People, and two others nominated by the committee, one of
whom is a
student representative.

Grants will be made at the discretion of the panel. In the case
of
matriculated members of the University, grants can be made towards,
for
example, the cost of equipment for particular needs, the conversion
of
buildings, the installation of handrails or similar items, or the

OX1 2JD
(telephone: (2)70083). They may be made by telephone, in writing or
in person.
Informal advice can be provided upon request by any member of the
panel. UK
students applying need to show that where relevant they have applied
to their
local education authority or graduate funding body for the minimum
mandatory
allowance. Furthermore, in most cases applicants will have to
demonstrate that
there is a need for funds in addition to those otherwise available.
Applicants
will not have to prove that they have a disability except where the
panel
considers it necessary and requires it. However, grants ordinarily
will not be
made where the disability is only temporary (e.g. a broken arm).

Grants will be made in the form that the panel determines is the
most
appropriate: whether as a lump sum to cover the needs over a course
lasting
more than one year, or on an annual basis (subject to the
availability of
funds), or as a one-off grant for a specific purpose.

Applicants may apply more than once, but except where
specifically
indicated the making of a grant in one year does not guarantee its
availability in future years. Grants may in some cases, however, be
made on a
recurrent basis in the reasonable expectation of funds being
available from
the Trust in subsequent years.

Grants will normally be paid directly to applicants who will in
all cases
have to satisfy the panel that the grant has been used for the
purpose for
which it was made. If a student prefers it, the University can make
payments
directly to the supplier of a service such as a weekly note-taker for
lectures
or a sign-language interpreter.

Where appropriate the panel will encourage an applicant's college
to match
grants from the Fund.

SQUIRE AND MARRIOTT BURSARIES

The electors propose, if suitable candidates present themselves, to
award two
or more bursaries on this foundation. The statutory conditions
require that
applicants must have the intention of offering themselves for
ordination in
the Church of England or any church in communion therewith and be in
need of
financial assistance for their university education. In addition the
electors
have discretion to make bursaries available, after Anglican
candidates have
been considered, to matriculated students of the University intending
ministry
in churches with which the Church of England has ecumenical
relations, or who
as lay men or women intend to serve their church as theologians.

The bursaries are of such annual value as the Board of the
Faculty of
Theology shall determine, and are tenable at any college or hall in
the
University.

Candidates will be required to provide the electors with evidence
of their
scholastic attainments and financial need together with testimonials
to their
character and ability. Selected candidates will be interviewed before
the
elections are made.

Prospective candidates should communicate by letter with The Revd
C.M.
Jones, St Peter's College, Oxford OX1 2DL, during March 1996 or
the latter
half of September 1996
.

A successful candidate, if not already a member of the
University, will be
required to make his own arrangements for admission to a college or
hall.
Candidates are warned that it would be impossible to secure such
admission for
Michaelmas Term 1996 if action is deferred until the awards are
announced.
They are accordingly strongly advised to seek admission as soon as
they have
decided to become candidates. A prospectus, which describes the
admission
procedure, may be obtained from the Oxford Colleges Admissions
Office,
University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

JEFFERY STORY BEQUEST

A Jeffery Story Fund for Japanese Art has been established under the
terms of
the bequest of the late Jeffery Story. Part of the net income of the
fund,
which is to be expended at the discretion of the Visitors of the
Ashmolean, is
available to provide grants to the staff and students of the museum,
to assist
the study of Japanese Art at the Ashmolean Museum, in Japan, and
wherever else
appropriate. There is no closing date for applications, which may be
made at
any time. Those eligible for grants from this source include not only
staff
and students already engaged in relevant work at the museum, but
also
visiting scholars coming or planning to come to Oxford to study at
the museum
within the field of Japanese Art. In making grants from the fund the
Visitors
(and those considering individual applications on their behalf) will
take into
account other possible sources of funds which may be available to
applicants,
and it is envisaged that grants from the fund may well be of small
sums which
will meet only a proportion of the expenses sought. Grants will be
available
to assist, in appropriate cases, with items such as research expenses
or
travel or in permitting attendance at conferences. Candidates should
apply in
writing and in advance giving details of the purpose for which
assistance is
requested, the amount of the contribution sought from the Story
bequest, and
the other relevant sources of funds. Applications should be sent to
the
Keeper, Department of Eastern Art, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford OX1 2PH.

early
stage
. The University of Tokyo cannot guarantee that Monbusho
Scholarships will be granted and successful candidates are advised to
apply
also to other sources, both British and Japanese, for financial
support.

Applications must be received by the International Officer,

ZAHAROFF FUND TRAVEL GRANTS

The Curators of the Taylor Institution give notice that they are
prepared to
consider applications from graduate students working for Oxford
postgraduate
degrees and diplomas (other than graduate students under the Board of
the
Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages) to assist with the cost of
travel in
connection with French studies. Grants when awarded are not normally
of a
value of more than £250 each and support work in such fields as
French
art, archaeology, history, literature, and sociology. It should be
noted that
the fact that an applicant has chosen to study in France will not in
itself
qualify his work as a branch of French studies. The Curators may take
into
account any other possible sources of financial support available to
applicants. Applicants holding State Studentships are asked to
approach their
grant-giving bodies first and to give in their applications as much
information as they can about the outcome of this approach.

Graduate students under the Modern Languages Board are referred
to the
arrangements for Zaharoff Fund travel grants administered by the
Graduate
Studies Committee of the faculty board.

Applications, which should be submitted on a form obtainable
from the
Secretary of the Taylor Institution, 37 Wellington Square, Oxford
OX1 2JF,
should be returned to him by Friday of the third week of Hilary
Term

(2 February 1996).

No applicant will be given a decision before the meeting of the
Curators
on the Thursday of the seventh week of that term unless it can be
shown to
their satisfaction that one is needed by an earlier date. Owing to
the demands
on the fund, it may not be possible for the Curators to consider
applications
received after the Friday of the third week of that term, even if the
income
in the fund has proved sufficient that academic year until that date.

The examination will consist of three papers: (a) French
Essay,
(b) translation from and into the French language,
(c) a
paper on general questions concerned, e.g. with French literature,
linguistics, or socio-cultural topics.

The following extracts from the regulations for the Zaharoff
Travelling
Scholarships are here printed for the information of intending

scholarship
shall not normally be less than £2,500 a year payable in three
instalments. The Curators will fix the value of each scholarship
taking
account of any other award available to the scholar and so that the
scholar
will be able in their opinion to pursue his studies in France
without
hardship.

7. All candidates for the scholarship shall send to the Secretary
of the
Taylor Institution on or before Friday in the sixth week of Hilary
Full Term
(23 February 1996) their names, a certificate of their academical

passed all
the examinations required for the Degree of Bachelor of Arts.

10. Throughout their period of tenure scholars shall report from
time to
time to the Marshal Foch Professor of French Literature on the
progress of
their work, and before receiving the second and third instalments of
the
scholarship they must furnish evidence to satisfy him that they are
pursuing
their studies in a profitable and satisfactory manner.

11. A scholarship shall be tenable for one year only, but under
special and
exceptional circumstances the curators may renew it for a period of
not
exceeding one year. Candidates must send their names, accompanied by
