Applications for the Grimstone Foundation Travel Award close 11 June

The Grimstone Foundation generously offers Travelling Fellowships to current MPhil or DPhil students whose research is related to Asian Studies. If suitable candidates present themselves, one or two awards of up to £2,500 each will be made. The awards are to support either a cultural travel project or field work that must be related to the student’s research. The travel must be within Asia during the academic year 2012/13, which will usually be in the applicant’s second year of study so that it will contribute to their dissertation/thesis. At the completion of the project, Fellowship-holders will be required to provide a report to the College of about 1500 words illustrating how the award has contributed to their research.

All applicants must provide:

  • A curriculum vitae
  • A research proposal: a clear outline of the work to be undertaken in Asia and how it fits into their programme of study, which should be around 500 to 1000 words in length. An itemized budget giving approximate costs should be included and, where applications have been for additional sources of funding, these should be listed
  • Letters of support from two referees (one of whom should be the applicants supervisor). Referees should submit references directly to the Academic Administrator.

Please submit applications and references to the Academic Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford, OX2 6UD, email academic.administrator@wolfson.ox.ac.uk by Monday 11 June 2012. Applicants should ensure that referees meet this deadline; the College will not seek references on behalf of applicants.
