The Committee for the Rhodes Chair has decided to extend its African Research Fellowships scheme for the academic year 1998–9. The scheme is intended to bring to Oxford scholars teaching in African universities. Preference is given to applicants working on a research project in collaboration with an Oxford Africanist. A total sum of £10,000 is available for grants in 1998–9. Successful applicants will receive an allowance of £850 a month and a contribution of up to £600 towards the cost of their fare, payable in Oxford. Applications should be made by 6 February to either Judith Heyer, Somerville College, Oxford OX2 6HD, or Professor William Beinart, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2 6JF. Applications should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, a research proposal, and references where possible. The Chair Committee will meet on 19 February when it will review the applications.
