Scholarships and Prizes 2007:
Grants From the Arnold, Bryce, and Read Funds
Grants may be made to assist in meeting travel and other expenses incidental to the pursuit of a definitive piece of historical investigation, to members of the University who are pursuing a course of full-time study; contributions towards attendance at a conference or workshop, however, are considered to be outside the remit of these funds.
Applications for support in the Long Vacation and Michaelmas Term will be considered in Trinity Term, and those for support in Hilary and Trinity Terms in Michaelmas or Hilary Terms as appropriate. These funds do not apply to Ancient History, for which support may be obtained from the Craven Committee.
Application forms and any eventual updates may be obtained from the History Faculty's Web site at http://www.history.ox.ac.uk/postgrad/researchexp_form.htm
Completed forms, together with a confidential recommendation by your supervisor, should be returned to the Graduate Officer by Friday of Sixth Week of the term preceding the vacation or term in which you will incur the expenses. (Please ask your supervisor to hand you such a recommendation in a sealed envelope, with the supervisor's signature across the flap.) It is intended that decisions will be made shortly thereafter, so that they can be reported to the eighth-week meeting of the Faculty Board.
Applications from those reading BA courses will be considered only in the most exceptional circumstances, and in the allocation of the monies available priority will always be given to applications from those engaged in graduate research.
Please note that retrospective applications cannot be entertained, and also that students will be eligible for support from the above Funds only once in any one academic year.
Enquiries and applications should be addressed to the History Graduate Office, Old High School for Boys, George Street, Oxford OX1 2RL; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
