Funds from the Prendergast Bequest are available to men and women born in the Republic or 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.
