Prospectus for the Dr Chun-tu Hsueh Travel Awards

The Dr Chun-tu Hsueh Travel awards have been established to provide postgraduate students who are working on research degrees in any aspect of Northeast, Southeast, and/or South Asian Studies with grants towards the cost of their thesis research. Only students from St Antony's College may apply.

The maximum award available is £500. Students with probationary status, students for the M.Phil., M.St., or M.Sc. degrees, or students whose thesis deals only tangentially with Asia are not eligible for consideration.

Among the purposes for which grants may be given are: travel essential to thesis research, travel to a conference to present a paper related to the thesis, the acquisition of material essential to research, and the preparation of artwork or other material for inclusion in the completed thesis. Grants for subsistence will not be made; nor is funding available to present papers at conferences, except when a very strong case can be made for the relevance of such a presentation to the applicant's thesis research. Candidates are expected to apply for grants before incurring expenses.

Applications for awards are considered once a year. Applications should be made on a form available from the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2 6JF (e-mail:, and should be submitted by the end of the second week of Hilary Term.

Applicants are asked to name one referee, normally the thesis supervisor, who should be requested to send in a reference directly to the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, by the deadline.

A subcommittee of the Asian Studies Centre will consider the applications and announce its decisions by the middle of the sixth week of Hilary Term. It reserves the right to make no awards, in the event that no suitable applications are received. Successful candidates will be required to submit a brief report to the Asian Studies Centre on their use of grants received, and notify the Centre upon completion of their degrees.
