Carlyle Fund

The Committee for the Carlyle Fund offers one research scholarship in the history of political thought (post- classical), broadly defined, tenable from October 2002 for up to four years. The scholarship will include maintenance at the current level of AHRB/ESRC awards, all university and college fees at the Home/EU rate, and a book grant of £400 per annum. The scholar must be a registered research student of the University or have applied for admission in October 2002. The scholarship will be awarded for one year in the first instance; awards for subsequent years will be subject to annual review by the committee. The scholar will be required to apply for an AHRB/ESRC award in the normal way prior to taking up the scholarship, and (if initially unsuccessful) to reapply in subsequent years.
