TIMOTHY BAILEY SCHOLARSHIP

The Timothy Bailey Trust has been set up in memory of Timothy Bailey, a biology graduate of Christ Church. It aims to provide financial support to students of Oxford University to assist them in undertaking any extra-curricular project or expedition relating to the biological sciences.

The Timothy Bailey Scholarship is awarded annually with money from the Timothy Bailey Trust Fund. Applicants should produce a written proposal of 500–1,000 words stating clearly: (a) the background to, and aims of, the activity; (b) how a successful outcome to the activity will contribute to our knowledge and understanding of any aspect of biology; (c) detailed work plans for a successful outcome; (d) how, in the event of a successful application, the award will contribute to this outcome.

Three copies of each application should be addressed to the Timothy Bailey Scholarship, c/o Professor Sarah E. Randolph, Department of Zoology, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS.

Entries will be judged by the Trustees, whose decision is final. The Timothy Bailey Scholarship will be awarded annually with a value of approximately £500. The winning applicant(s) will be expected to acknowledge the support of the Timothy Bailey Trust in any reports or scientific papers arising from any activity supported by the Trust. They should also provide a written report of approximately 2,000 words to the Trustees upon completion of the research and travel supported.

The closing date for applications this year is Monday, 28 April. Further details can be found at www.timothybailey.com.
