Applications are invited for the Philip Bagby Studentship, tenable from 1 October 2004. The competition is open to graduates, of any university, with suitable qualifications in Social Anthropology and applications from candidates not at present at Oxford will be especially welcome.

The award will cover the payment of university fees at the rate for UK and EC students, and college fees. The remainder is available as a maintenance grant. The total amount of the grant is £10,000 per year. The period of tenure will not normally exceed two years, and is for a maximum of three years. Holders of the Bagby Studentship will work in the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology and be registered for a research degree in Social Anthropology of the University of Oxford (the M.Litt. or D.Phil.) Applications may also be considered from those already embarked upon an M.Phil. course.

All applicants are encouraged most strongly to apply for other sources of funding for which they may be eligible. Overseas students are expected to apply for ORS Awards, details of which can be obtained from the International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

Candidates for this studentship who are neither at the University of Oxford, nor have secured a place at Oxford, should apply for admission to the University as soon as possible.

Note: application for the Studentship does not serve as an application for admission to the University. Applicants for admission to the University should contact the Graduate Admissions Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

There is no separate application form for this award. Applications for this studentship must include: a letter of application together with an up-to-date curriculum vitae; a two page summary of proposed research; details of the applicant's financial situation and of grants for which he or she is or will be applying. Candidates are responsible for ensuring that two academic references are sent to the name and address below by the closing date. Applications without two such references will not be considered. The closing date for the receipt of applications is Friday, 26 March, and should be sent to Mrs A. Cowie, School of Anthropology, 51 Banbury Road, Oxford OX2 6PE.
