Scholarships and Prizes 2005:
The Board of Management of the Abbott Fund invites applications during Michaelmas Term, for the award of bursaries to members of the University who are:
(a) children (including orphan children) of the clergy of the Church of England;
(b) reading for (i) a first degree, or (ii) the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine or an equivalent degree, or (iii) a second Honour School, of the University; and
(c) standing in need of financial assistance to enable them to obtain the full benefit of a university education.
The bursaries may range from £300 to £1,700, depending upon financial circumstances. As demand on this small fund is high, the fund managers expect that applicants will have sought additional financial support from other sources, including the Student Loan Company and the Access to Learning Funds (formerly Government Hardship Funds).
Students who are eligible should contact their Senior Tutor or College Chaplain for further information, or refer to http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/councilsec/trustfunds/abbott.shtml. The deadline for the 20056 application round is Friday, 2 December 2005. Bursaries are paid in the second half of Hilary Term.
