Preference will be given to workers in the following subject areas: agriculture, forestry, food sciences, biotechnology, development strategies, earth and marine sciences, engineering, health and related social sciences, information technology, management for change, professional education and training, social and cultural development, and university development and management.

Fellowships will be tenable for up to a maximum of six months.

Grants to promote Italian culture

The Oxford Italian Association is offering modest top-up grants, not normally of more than £100, to assist graduate students and others to promote aspects of Italian culture in Oxford. Such grants may be used, for instance, to help stage an Italian play, to contribute to research expenses (including travel to Italy), and other activities which the committee judge to be of value in this area.

Applications, with a brief account of the project and if possible a supporting note from a tutor, should be sent by 12 March to Professor J.R. Woodhouse, 47 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JF. Applications arriving after that date may be considered for future grants.
