Scholarships and Prizes 2003: Miscellaneous and
JEFFERY STORY BEQUESTA Jeffery Story Fund for Japanese Art has been established under the terms of the bequest of the late Jeffery Story. Part of the net income of the fund, which is to be expended at the discretion of the Visitors of the Ashmolean, is available to provide grants to the staff and students of the museum, to assist the study of Japanese Art at the Ashmolean Museum, in Japan, and wherever else appropriate. There is no closing date for applications, which may be made at any time. Those eligible for grants from this source include not only staff and students already engaged in relevant work at the museum, but also visiting scholars coming or planning to come to Oxford to study at the museum within the field of Japanese Art. In making grants from the fund the Visitors (and those considering individual applications on their behalf) will take into account other possible sources of funds which may be available to applicants, and it is envisaged that grants from the fund may well be of small sums which will meet only a proportion of the expenses sought. Grants will be available to assist, in appropriate cases, with items such as research expenses or travel or in permitting attendance at conferences.
Candidates should apply in writing and in advance giving details of the purpose for which assistance is requested, the amount of the contribution sought from the Story bequest, and the other relevant sources of funds. Applications should be sent to the Keeper, Department of Eastern Art, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford OX1 2PH.
