NORMAN CHESTER FUND

The income of the Norman Chester Fund is to be used for the making of grants `for the promotion of the study of government and politics and generally to further a science of politics within the university'. Applications are invited for grants to assist in meeting the expenses of research from any member of the University reading for the M.Litt., D.Phil., and the Phil. in exceptional circumstances only (such applicants would be required to submit a detailed application to establish that there is a real need for his or her fieldwork/research to be carried out abroad). Candidates should also note that
(a) the Managers will be reluctant to make awards to those who appear to be at a preliminary exploratory stage in their research and
(b) will not normally wish to support candidates applying for assistance who have already applied for extension of time on their M.Litt./D.Phil. thesis.

Application forms are available from the Department of Politics and International Relations' Web site, http://www.politics.ox.ac.uk/teaching/dept-funding.htm, and should be submitted to the Department Administrator, Department of Politics and International Relations, George Street, Oxford OX1 2RL by noon on Friday of 5th week of each term. Please note that grants awarded will not normally exceed £500.
