Bartle Frere Exhibitions: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2000, pp. 692 and 741

Bartle Frere Exhibitions are awarded annually for study or research in any branch of knowledge relating to a Commonwealth country other than the United Kingdom, Bangladesh, India, or Pakistan. The total sum available for awards in 2001 is about £4,000. The General Board will give preference to Graduate Students intending to spend the period of tenure undertaking research in one of the countries provided for in the regulations but undergraduates will also be considered. In 2000, fifteen awards were made of about £350 each.

In order to discourage over-optimistic applications, the Managers draw the particular attention of potential applicants to the size of awards which it has been usual for them to offer in recent years. In addition the Managers wish to make known that they cannot support the following activities: participation in study programmes or language courses (although a contribution towards the costs of course related work experience abroad may be considered); conferences (either to present a paper or to attend); charitable activities; fieldwork for M.Phil. theses; medical electives; or seeing veterinary practice.

Successful applicants will normally offer both a good academic record and a good project proposal.

Applications must be made on the prescribed form by 1 March 2001. This date will be strictly held. Applications by members of the University must be submitted through the applicant's Tutor; applications by other qualified persons should be submitted direct. Copies of the application form may be obtained from the Committee on Grants, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, to which address completed forms should be sent.
