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

(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

Eligible members of the University may wish to note that in

The board is prepared to consider recommendations also on
behalf
of
present or future members of the University who intend to embark

above,
provided
the criteria at (a) and (c) are satisfied.

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.

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).

LADY ALLEN SCHOLARSHIP

The trustees of the late Lady Consuelo Maria Allen wish to offer
a
Lady Allen Scholarship for research study in Spain, tenable for
one
year with effect from 1 October 1997.

The Lady Allen Scholarship is open to students who are working
for
a higher degree of the University of Oxford in the field of
Spanish
history, literature, languages, music, and other cultural aspects
of
Spain. Because of Lady Allen's interest in promoting cultural
understanding between Spain and the United Kingdom, preference
may be
given to candidates who are citizens of the United Kingdom.

The Trustees will offer an award towards the cost of either
research study in Spain or a taught course at a Spanish
university in
the field described above. The award will be tenable for either
one
academic year or one twelve-month period, as appropriate, and
will be
set at a level between £6,000 and £8,000, at the
discretion
of the Trustees, depending on the estimated subsistence costs.
In the
case of applicants wishing to register for a taught course at a
Spanish university, a supplementary award may be made (the total
award will not, however, exceed £10,000).

A committee comprising representatives from the Modern History
Board, the Modern Languages Board, and other boards as
appropriate,
will draw up a short-list of candidates on the basis of their
academic merit for the consideration of the Trustees. The
Trustees
will award the scholarship primarily on the basis of academic
merit,
but if all other things are equal, they may give preference to
a
candidate from Exeter College.

Application is by a form available from the Administrator,
Faculty
of Modern History, Broad Street (telephone: (2)77253), together
with
a proposal, not exceeding four sides of A4 paper, setting out the
academic context of the work which the applicant wishes to
undertake
in Spain and outlining what he or she would hope to achieve
during
the tenure of the Allen Scholarship. The deadline for
applications,
which should be addressed to the Administrator of the Modern
History
Faculty, is Friday, 13 June 1997. Applicants are asked
to
arrange for
two references, one of which must be from their supervisor, to
be
received by the Administrator by the same date.

ARNOLD, BRYCE, AND READ GRANTS (MODERN
HISTORY)
1997–8

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
1997.

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 1996–7.)

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)70761)
to
whom
completed application forms should be returned. Applications are
considered by the board four times a year. Each applicant should
submit a completed form and arrange for a reference (see below)
to
reach the Secretary by Friday of the third week of the term in
which
he or she wishes the application to be considered, or, in the
case of
the Long Vacation, by 31 July. For 1996-7, therefore, the closing
dates for receipt of applications are 1 November 1996, 7
February
1997, 16 May 1997, and 31 July 1997
. As indicated 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 in support of the application. 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
grants of up to a similar value to those awarded to those
visiting
the United States 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. Application forms are available from the Secretary,
and
should be returned by the dates set out above. Applicants 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.

The board of management also invites heads of non-clinical
university departments to make recommendations for appointments
to
Astor Visiting Lecturerships in 1997. The board will provide
grants
to support the one-week residential appointments for
distinguished
visitors from the United States. Recommendations should reach the
Secretary, from whom further details should be sought, by
Friday,
1 November 1996
.

GRANTS FROM THE BEIT FUND

The Board of Management of the Beit Fund is empowered to make
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

(a) to examine archives in this country or abroad;
or

(b) to complete a course of research which would
otherwise have
to be curtailed through financial difficulty; or

(c) to publish a thesis approved by the examiners
and
considered
by them to be of exceptional merit, provided that the work for
this
is normally
carried out
in Oxford.

Applications from junior members of the University who are
pursuing a
course of full-time study may only be made on the standard form,
available,
with notes of guidance, from the Secretary to the Board of
Management

of the Beit Fund, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford
OX1 2JD (telephone: (2)70761),
to whom six copies must be returned not later than Friday,
21
March
1997
. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that
three
references reach the Secretary to the Board of Management by the
closing date.
A selection of applicants for grants 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.

THE CRAVEN FELLOWSHIP 1997

  • THE DERBY SCHOLARSHIP 1997
  • THE THOMAS WHITCOMBE GREENE SCHOLARSHIP FOR CLASSICAL ART AND
    ARCHAEOLOGY
    1997
  • THE HENRY FRANCIS PELHAM STUDENTSHIP 1997

Elections will be made to the awards named above in Trinity Term
1997,
provided that candidates of sufficient merit present themselves.

These awards are open to members of the University on
postgraduate courses
who have not exceeded the twenty-first term from their
matriculation.
None of
the awards may be held twice by the same person. Tenure normally
commences on
1 August in the year of election. The annual value of each is
£400 to be
devoted to the expenses of residence abroad in cases where such
residence is a
requirement of the terms of the award. The Craven Committee may
also
agree to refund expenses
incurred in
the reasonable discharge of the obligations of the award in so
far as
they are
not obtainable from another source. 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
the award is held.

Applications, on a form to be obtained from the Secretary to
the
Craven
Committee, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD,
should be
sent to the Secretary on or before Friday, 2 May 1997.
Candidates
are responsible for requesting three referees to supply letters
of
recommendation, which should be sent to the Secretary of the
Craven
Committee
at the University Offices, by the date given above. They should
also
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 should include 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
time to
time of diligent prosecution of their studies, and emoluments
will be
paid at
the Committee's discretion and in such instalments as it thinks
fit.

The specific requirements of each award are set out below:

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:

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

The Alistair Buchan Fund: this fund, which is
strictly limited, is available `for the promotion of research in
international relations'.

Applications for grants under these funds 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.

2. Graduate students (including M.St. and M.Phil.) can also
apply for the annual Maurice Latey Award `to
assist
travel for research by postgraduate students in the fields of
politics of 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 for small research grants 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/or 2 above should be made
on a
form available from the Secretary to the Managers (address
below),
and should be submitted by the end of the fifth week of each
Oxford
term. Consideration of applications submitted after that date
will
normally be deferred until the latter part of the following term.
Candidates are asked to state the name of the fund/s to which
they
are applying, and to clarify the relevance of their project to
the
purpose of the particular fund. Graduate students applying for
research grants are also asked to name one referee, normally
their
supervisor, who should be requested to send a reference directly
to
the Secretary to the Managers.

4. Applications are also invited for the annual Royal
Bank
of Canada Scholarship
. This award, of a value of
£1,000, is available to any graduate student of the
University
(including the M.St. and M.Phil.) to cover costs of research
outside
the UK on `international relations with special reference to
Canada'.
Letters of application should be submitted by the end of the
fifth
week of Trinity Term. There is no application form, but
candidates
should state college, course, and supervisor, and they should
give a
brief outline of their thesis topic and proposed research.

5. All requests for application forms, correspondence, and
references should be addressed directly to Mrs Marga Lyall,
Secretary
to the Managers of the Cyril Foster and Related Funds, Centre for
International Studies, Social Studies Faculty Centre, George
Street,
Oxford OX1 2RL.

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.

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).

This period will be extended to three years (or two years in the
case
of
students with Senior Status) in the case of candidates who have
obtained a
Heath Harrison Scholarship in another language at a previous
examination or
who have been placed in the Class List by the Honour Moderators.

scholarships
in all languages (including Russian) are of the value of
£1,200. On
satisfying the board that they have made satisfactory
arrangements
for their
stay abroad, scholars will receive £1,100. The value of the
scholarships
will be reviewed from time to time and in exceptional
circumstances
a small
supplement may be approved by the supervisors appointed by the

of
Management. Before the expiration of the tenure of the
scholarship
they will
be required to furnish the Board of Management with written
evidence
that they

ILCHESTER FUND TRAVEL GRANTS

Applications are invited for grants (not normally of a value of
more than
£250 each) 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
need for an historical element in projects
which are not
primarily in the fields of Slavonic Languages or Literature is
emphasised.

It should also be noted that grants will not be made
towards the
costs of attendance at language courses, and that the fact that
an
application is for study in one of the countries concerned will
not
in
itself
qualify it 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 (other than graduate students under the
Board of
the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages).

Account may be taken of any other possible sources of
financial
support available to applicants.

Applications, which should be submitted on a form obtainable

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 were as follows:
to
Europe
£250, to North America £500, to elsewhere £700.
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 currently under review and 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.

SOUTHERN TRUST FUND FOR STUDENTS WITH
DISABILITIES

Thanks to the generosity of the Southern Trust, the University
has a
fund for
the support of students who, by reason of their disability, need
special
equipment or other support in order to pursue their studies. The
fund
is
administered by a sub-committee of the Committee for Disabled
People.
Wherever
possible, this panel includes at least one individual with a
disability and
consists of the chairman and secretary of the university
Committee
for
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
provision of
non-medical support. In the case of candidates for admission to
the
University, grants can be made for such items as the provision
of
accommodation, transport, communications and other expenses.

Applications should be made initially to the secretary of the
Committee
for Disabled People, University Offices, Wellington Square,
Oxford
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.

University, will be
required to make his own arrangements for admission to a college
or
hall.

as
they have
decided to become candidates. A prospectus, which describes the

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
