Applications are invited for grants of up to approximately £5,000 for support of field-based research concerned with the African environment. The Trapnell Fund is not intended to support research which is mainly anthropological or sociological in nature. Applicants should be graduates of African or British universities who have a working association with Oxford University. Preference will be given to those who are, or will be, working for a research degree of Oxford University, but applicants holding postdoctoral positions would also be considered. Applicants are required to provide the name of their proposed supervisor if they are intending to study for a research degree at Oxford. In other cases they should provide the name of their proposed collaborator at Oxford. The closing date for receipt of applications is 1 April (the closing date has been extended beyond that given in an earlier announcement). Further particulars may be obtained from Mrs Judith Brown, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone: (2)70213), to whom applications should be sent.
