BROOKE BENJAMIN TRAVEL BURSARYDonations from colleagues and friends of the late T. Brooke Benjamin, FRS [Sedleian Professor of Natural Philosophy, 1979--1995] have enabled the University to establish a fund, to be known as the Brooke Benjamin Memorial Fund, for the encouragement of the study of experimental or theoretical mechanics at postgraduate level within the University.
A Brooke Benjamin Travel Bursary will be awarded every two years to a research student in experimental or theoretical mechanics. It is anticipated bursaries will be in the region of £300 and will be used for: in the case of an Oxford student, for approved travel for research purposes, or, in the case of an external student, to support visits to the Mathematical Institute in Oxford for research purposes. In the case of non-UK candidates wishing to visit Oxford, preference will be given to those from France and the US, although other EU nationals will not be excluded.
The administration of the fund, although under the direction of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, will be the responsibility of the Mathematical Institute. [Applications will be considered by a committee comprising Professor J.M. Ball, Sedleian Professor of Natural Philosophy, Professor T. Mullin, Professor of Physics, Manchester University, and Dr H. Ockendon, OCIAM.]
Applications, including the following documentation, should be sent to the Administrator, Mathematical Institute, 24--9 St. Giles', Oxford OX1 3LB by 31 January 2004:
(i) Letter outlining the use to which the bursary would be put
(ii) A detailed curriculum vitae
(iii) Letter of support from someone familiar with the appliant's research, e.g. supervisor, head of department, etc.
