Clara Florio Cooper Memorial Bursaries
The Oxford Italian Association invites applications for open bursaries set up by friends and colleagues to commemorate the life and work of Clara Florio Cooper (1947–2004). This year it is intended to offer two annual awards of up to £700 each to promote graduate research into aspects of Italian culture (including, for instance, travel to consult manuscripts in Italian archives).
Applications (closing date 30 March 2007) should include a brief curriculum vitae, preferably with an e-mail contact address, an outline of the research proposed (on no more than one page of A4), and a letter of support from the applicant's supervisor to Dr Franca Pellegrini, the Oxford Italian Association, 47 Wellington Square, Oxford.
Smaller top-up grants (usually of no more than £100), intended for graduates specifically based in Oxford and working on Italian culture, are also available, and applications should be sent as above.
