Vaughan Cornish Bequest

The income of the Vaughan Cornish Bequest is available for the 'encouragement and assistance of postgraduate students of the University engaged in the advancement of knowledge relating to the beauty of scenery as determined by nature or the arts in town or country at home or abroad'.

The Board of Management invites applications for grants, or other assistance from the fund, from members of the University who (i) either (a) are currently students for the Degree of B.Phil, M.Phil, M.Litt, M.Sc, or D.Phil or (b) having recently proceeded to a degree in the University can satisfy the board that they have an appropriate plan of work; and (ii) are engaged in any study covered by the terms of the bequest.

Six copies of applications should be submitted to the Secretary to the Board of Management of the Vaughan Cornish Bequest, School of Geography, Oxford University Centre for the Environment, Dyson Perrins Building, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3QY, by Friday, 7 March 2008. They should give: (a) the applicant's full name, age, college, and date of matriculation; (b) a short statement of his or her university career; (c) a brief description of the course of study being pursued; (d) details of the research involved in this course and the way in which this relates to the purpose of the Bequest, viz. 'the advancement of knowledge relating to the beauty of scenery as determined by nature or the arts in town or country at home or abroad'; (e) the particular purpose and amount of the grant being requested (grants normally will be made for specific and largely self-contained projects); (f) details of other sources of assistance which are available (or for which application has been or will be made), (g) the names of two referees.

Applicants are advised that the funds available to the Board of Management are limited. Grants are intended to assist with expenses incurred in the course of research that is relevant to the terms of the Bequest. Applicants should therefore note that grants cannot be made to meet course fees or general maintenance costs.

In exceptional circumstances the board may be prepared to consider applications in Michaelmas Term and Trinity Term (if submitted by the fifth week of term)
