AWARDS TO INDIVIDUALS

Study Abroad Studentships (ref. SAS2)

The Leverhulme Trust invites applications from holders of a first degree from a UK higher education institution (or equivalent) for Study Abroad Studentships, tenable for twelve or twenty-four months at any centre of learning in the world, except the UK and USA. Applications will be considered in all subject areas but the awards are not intended for those who wish only to improve their knowledge of modern languages. Approximately 25 Studentships are offered annually. The closing date for applications is 4 p.m. on Monday, 8 January 2001.

Emeritus Fellowships (ref. F6)

The Leverhulme Trust invites applications from recently retired scholars to complete and prepare for publication the results of research already begun. Applicants should have retired during the last three years or must have retired by the time of commencing the Fellowship. Applications will be considered in all subject areas. Approximately 30 Fellowships are offered annually. The closing date for applications is 4 p.m. on Monday, 27 November 2000. Applications must be sent to the Research Grants and Contracts Section of the University for approval, together with a completed RSD-1A form before they are sent to the Leverhulme Trust.

Research Fellowships and Grants (ref. F2)

The Leverhulme Trust invites applications from experienced researchers, particularly those who have been prevented by routine duties from undertaking or completing a programme of original research. Approximately 140 awards are offered annually. Grants provide research expenses over and above normal living costs; Fellowships provide a contribution towards replacement teaching costs or loss of earnings plus research expenses, if required. Applications will be considered in all subject areas. The closing date for applications is 4 p.m. on Monday, 13 November 2000.

Study Abroad Fellowships (ref. F2)

The Leverhulme Trust invites applications from holders of established full-time posts in UK institutions of higher education, museums, art galleries, or comparable institutions, to support a sabbatical period overseas, devoted to individual study, scholarship, and research development. Approximately 25 Fellowships are offered annually. The closing date for applications is 4 p.m. on Monday, 13 November 2000.

Applications for the Research Fellowships and Grants and the Study Abroad Fellowships must be submitted to the Research Grants and Contracts Section of the University for approval and signature, together with a completed RSD-1A form before they are submitted to the Leverhulme Trust. Applications must also be accompanied by a statement from the Chair of the Faculty Board that any application for leave to take up an award would be supported by the Board. Please note that the Leverhulme Trust will award a maximum of £17,250 in total under this scheme. Any shortfall in funds will therefore have to be met by the Department; there are no central University funds available for this purpose.

The RSD-1A form can be obtained from the Research Grants and Contracts Section's website (http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/rg-cs/). Please note that the Research Grants and Contracts Section requires three working days to process grant applications.

Further information and applications forms for all these schemes can be obtained from the Secretary, Research Awards Advisory Committee, Leverhulme Trust, 1 Pemberton Row, London, EC4A 3BG, or from the Trust's website (http://www.leverhulme.org.uk). Postal requests for application details must be accompanied by an A4-size self-addressed envelope, stamped for 150 grams for each set of details.
