PETER LIENHARDT MEMORIAL FUND AND PHILIP BAGBY BEQUEST

The Board of Management for these funds is considering making small grants to applicants in the following categories: students registered for degrees at the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology who need funds for research purposes; and, from the Peter Lienhardt Memorial Fund only, other individuals working in the field of social anthropology who wish to carry out some particular project within the University. The terms of reference of the Philip Bagby Bequest specify that grants from that fund must encourage the comparative study of the development of urban, literate cultures in accordance with anthropological principles and methods. Application forms may be obtained from Miss Emma Wilson, the Oriental Institute, Pusey Lane, Oxford OX1 2LE. Closing date for applications: Monday, 1 June.
