Awards for study in Europe

The trustees of the Philosophical Fellowship Fund, which was established in 1941 for 'the furtherance of philosophical and/or scientific research', now invite applications for support from candidates whose research would benefit in some significant respect from a period of up to three months (or, exceptionally, up to six months), to be spent working in a European country (other than the UK) during the current academic year, starting not earlier than 15 March 2006. Candidates should at present be working for a higher degree in philosophy or a related subject with strong philosophical associations, or should have been awarded such a degree not more than three years ago.

Applications (hard copy, in triplicate) should be sent to Dr Sabina Lovibond, Worcester College, and should reach her by Friday, 2 December. Candidates should include, with their curriculum vitae, a brief description of their current research and study plans, and explanation of what they hope to achieve through their stay abroad. They should also give the names of two referees, whom they should ask to write directly to Dr Lovibond. Short-listed candidates will be asked to provide a sample of their written work, of not more than 5,000 words in length. Interviews, if any, will be held in the first half of Hilary Term.

The exact amount of any awards that may be made will be assessed in the light of the successful candidate's (or candidates') plans, but it is intended that they should be sufficient to cover the estimated basic costs of his or her travel and maintenance during the period of study abroad.
