The Committee for the History of Art proposes to award this prize in Hilary Term 1999, provided that there is a candidate of sufficient merit.

The prize (which will be one of up to £1,000) is open to all members of the University, whether men or women, who have not exceeded twenty-one terms from their matriculation. Preference will be given to candidates whose travel plans are not related to their academic discipline. It will be awarded to enable the prize-winner to travel to Asia, the Far East, or another area outside Europe, to extend knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts.

The holder of the prize will be expected to submit a report on the travels after return.

Candidates should apply in writing to the Secretary to the Committee for the History of Art, Modern History Faculty, Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BD, not later than Friday, 29 January 1999.

Applications must include, in addition to any testimonials which the applicant may wish to submit, (a) the applicant's name, college, and date of matriculation; (b) a summary of academic career since matriculation, and of any relevant attainments, qualifications, and interests; (c) the object of the travel to be undertaken, and the proposed itinerary; (d) the names of two referees, who should be tutors or others in a position to judge of the applicant's ability to profit from the travel proposed.
