SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDY IN GERMANY

The following scholarships offering the opportunity for Oxford graduates and final-year undergraduates to study in Germany are available in the academic year 2005--6.

Hanseatic Scholarships

Two scholarships are available for graduate and undergraduate (final year) students at the University of Oxford. They are tenable for two years (or, in certain circumstances, one year) at any academic institution in Germany. The successful candidates must undertake research at doctoral or postdoctoral level, or give evidence of a workable project not connected to a research degree. There is the opportunity to obtain a German degree. The current value of the scholarships is 920 euros per month; travel expenses will also be covered. The scholarship is open to members of the University who are British citizens, under twenty-eight years of age by 1 October 2005, and who have either completed all the examinations required for the Oxford BA degree, or have embarked on a course of postgraduate study at the University.

Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship

One scholarship is available for graduate and undergraduate (final year) students at the University of Oxford. The scholarship is tenable for ten months from 1 October 2005 at any university, technical university, or art or music academy in Germany, and may be extended for a second year. The scholar will receive a monthly maintenance grant and remission of institution fees. A grant will be made to assist with travel expenses, and a small book grant will be available each term. The scholarship is open to members of the University who are British citizens, under thirty-two years of age by 1 October 2005, and who have either completed all the examinations required for the Oxford BA degree, or have embarked on a course of postgraduate study at the University.

Theodor Heuss Research Fellowship

One fellowship is available for postgraduate or postdoctoral students at the University of Oxford. The fellowship is tenable for one year, in the first instance, at any university or other institution of higher learning in Germany. The holder of the fellowship will receive a monthly maintenance grant, which is currently 1,740 euros for postdoctoral fellows and 1,280 euros for doctoral students; travel expenses and institution fees will also be covered. The fellowship is open to members of the University who are British citizens, under thirty-two years of age by 1 October 2005, and who have either embarked on a course of postgraduate study or have already obtained a postgraduate qualification of the University.

ST HUGH'S COLLEGE

Colin Matthew Fund

The Committee for the Colin Matthew Fund now invites applications for grants from student members of the University, undergraduate or graduate. The Fund was established for the promotion and encouragement of historical study or research within the University of Oxford. The grants are primarily intended to support travel for the purposes of research (which may lead to a dissertation or an extended essay) but other uses will be considered. It is intended to make two awards of up to £500 each but the committee may make different levels of award, or no award, in the light of applications received.

Application forms may be obtained from the Bursar, St Hugh's College, Oxford OX2 6LE (e-mail: deborah.gibbs@st-hughs.ox.ac.uk), and must be submitted by the end of Hilary Full Term (12 March). Applicants will be notified of the outcome in Trinity Term.
