African Studentships

The Rhodes Race Relations Fund Committee of the Social Studies Board invites applications for up to three Studentships in African Environmental History from persons who will be registered as graduate students of the University from October 1997. Preference may be given to those whose work involves the study of southern African environmental history.

Applicants for the studentship(s) may be candidates for admission, or already registered as graduate students. The successful applicant, if not already a member of an Oxford college, may be offered a place at St Antony's College. Candidates without any existing college association should name St Antony's as their college of first choice on their graduate application form. The scholarship will cover college and university fees and a maintenance allowance for two years in the first instance with possible extension to a third year. The scholarships will normally cover university fees at the home rate, although in exceptional circumstances supplemental grants may be made in order to meet (or to go some way towards meeting) the difference between the home and the overseas fee.

Application forms and further particulars are available from Charles Shaw, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD. Applications should be sent to reach him by 1 May.
