Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages

Graduate Awards in Modern Languages 2006–7

Awards in French

The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages intends to offer two awards for Graduate Studies in French:

  • A three-year Zaharoff Studentship for a PRS student, covering fees and maintenance
  • A one-year Heath Harrison bursary, for a Master's student, of up to £16,000
Applications for these awards should consist of a curriculum vitae, an account of the research proposal or taught course you intend to pursue and a letter of support from a senior academic. Candidates should also declare any other funding from which they expect to benefit; and, in the event of their being successful in the AHRC competition, to forfeit the bursary upon being so informed. Applicants who have not already been admitted to an Oxford course should ensure that their application is received before (or at the latest at the same time as) the bursary application, for which the closing date is 30 June. Applications should be sent to Joy Axtell, 41 Wellington Square, Oxford.

General awards

The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages intends to offer a range of bursaries for Graduate Studies in Medieval and Modern Languages at both Doctoral and Master's level, some of which involve a specified College affiliation. These will include:

  • Studentship (college fees only, for up to three years) in conjunction with Jesus College
  • Heath Harrison Bursary (one year, value £3,000) Further details of the range of bursaries will be posted on the Faculty Web site, www.mod-langs.ox.ac.uk

These awards will be limited to those who have already been admitted to an appropriate Oxford degree course by 1 August 2006. Students already pursuing a course without AHRC or similar funding are also eligible to apply. Applications should consist of a curriculum vitae, an account of the research proposal or taught course you intend to pursue and a letter of support from a senior academic. Candidates should also declare any other funding from which they benefit or expect to benefit. Those who are already candidates for an AHRC award in the current competition, and candidates for the awards in French (above), will automatically be considered, and should not submit a separate application. The deadline for receipt of applications is 1 August. Applications should be sent to Joy Axtell, 41 Wellington Square, Oxford.
