The Administrators of the H. E. Durham Fund give notice that small grants may be made for the purpose of advancing, improving, or disseminating knowledge of human or animal life in health or in disease. Applications for such grants are invited from graduates. Preference will be given to applications for support of original research. If the applicant is not a member of the University, the work must be done in Cambridge. Applicants should specify the work proposed, their special qualifications in the field of study, and their need for financial support. They should also ask two sponsors to write independently in support of their application and it is their responsibility to ensure that the letters of support, as well as their application, reach the Tutorial Office, King's College, before the closing date.

The Administrators also invite applications from individual Cambridge undergraduates for grants to enable them to study or assist in research within the subjects specified above for about eight weeks during the Long Vacation. They do this in the hope that experience of this kind may help undergraduates, as potential research workers, in their choice of subject at a later date. Applicants should therefore be undergraduates whose intention is to do research after they graduate. This means that applications for expeditions will rarely qualify. In their applications candidates should include the subject of the proposed work, their academic qualifications, the laboratory accommodation available, and proposed arrangements for supervision. The application should be forwarded to the candidate's Director of Studies who is requested to add comments.

Applicants should state whether alternative sources of funding are available, the amount applied for, and the dates when the outcome will be known.

Applications must be sent, marked 'Durham Fund Application', to the Tutorial Office, King's College, Cambridge, CB2 1ST, so as to reach us not later than Tuesday, 1 May 2001. It is hoped to inform successful candidates by the end of May.
