Research Leave Scheme 1998–9

The British Academy has announced details of another round of awards under its research leave scheme for academic staff in the humanities. Awards are for one term.

Applications should be submitted through the college (for CUF and special non-CUF lecturers); or through the University (for other university academic staff). Detailed consideration of the implications of any successful application will be undertaken in due course by both the University and the college in the case of those holding joint appointments.

Application forms and further details about the scheme are available from senior tutors or from appropriate faculty board secretaries. The academy's closing date for the receipt of applications is 1 October.

A student exchange programme has recently been established between the ANU and Oxford. Two places will be available in 1998 for current graduate or undergraduate students of this University who wish to undertake a period of study at the ANU. Australian nationals will not normally be eligible to apply. It is expected that the exchanges will begin in January 1998 and that the students would spend at least six months at the ANU. A grant of the order of up to £1,500 will be available to assist with costs of travel and maintenance. Further information is available from the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: Oxford (2)70241/(2)70189).
