Grants for study or research from the Smuts Memorial Fund: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2000, pp. 692 and 838

The Managers of the Smuts Memorial Fund invite applications for grants in support of study or research that would contribute to the advancement of Commonwealth Studies in the University. All applications must be made on the forms provided, which may be obtained from the Secretary to the Managers of the Smuts Memorial Fund, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ. Applications for grants towards the purchase of audio-visual equipment, and for the purchase of associated consumables, for use in fieldwork must be made on the separate form provided for the purpose.

The Managers have agreed not to make grants to undergraduates or to those following M.Phil. or other one- year courses; they will not ordinarily award grants for the financing of group expeditions; nor will they make grants to persons not returning to Cambridge at the end of their period of study abroad. The Managers do not normally expect to make more than one substantial award to a Graduate Student in the course of his or her research for a degree.

Applications for study grants are considered by the Managers once each term. The closing dates for applications are 1 January 2001 for consideration in the Lent Term 2001, 1 March 2001 for consideration in the Easter Term 2001, and 1 October 2001 for consideration in the Michaelmas Term 2001.

The Managers are prepared also to consider, at any time, applications for grants not exceeding £100 for the copying of documents in the field of Commonwealth Studies. Such grants are made on condition that the copies become the property of the Managers of the Fund and are deposited, in good order, on permanent loan in a library within the University. Applications should be made on a form available from 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ.
