OXFORD NOTICES

Merton College

DOMUS GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS (COMPETITION B)

The Scholarships are intended to assist students of outstanding academic excellence who for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to study at the University of Oxford. The Scholarships comprise payment of all College and University fees and an additional maintenance grant equivalent to that of the AHRB (in the region of £10,500 for 2004-05), payable in three termly instalments, net of accommodation, if applicable. Single accommodation, if required, is guaranteed for the first year of the Scholarship and may be available in the subsequent years. Subject to satisfactory progress, the Scholarships will be tenable for three years.

Competition B is open to graduates of any university with a first class honours degree, who are ordinarily resident in the UK, and have not completed more than two years of postgraduate study or research, and have been accepted to begin a course of study leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford in October 2004 in any subject normally acceptable for graduate study at the College, and have no other funding which would allow them to do so. The College intends to award one or two Scholarships. Those interested in applying should contact the Secretary for Graduates, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (e-mail julieg@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk). Applications should be submitted no earlier than 16 August. The closing date for applications is 1 September.

LEVENTIS GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN GREEK STUDIES

The College proposes to elect in 2005 a Leventis Graduate Scholar. The Scholarship will cover College and University fees, and an additional maintenance grant equivalent to that of the AHRB (in the region of £10,500 for 2004/05), payable in three termly instalments, net of accommodation, if applicable. Single accommodation, if required, is guaranteed for the first year of the Scholarship and may be available in subsequent years. Subject to satisfactory progress, the Scholarship will be tenable for three years.

The award is open to both men and women who meet the following criteria: all candidates must be university graduates, who are citizens of the Republic of Greece or the Republic of Cyprus, and have not completed more than two years of postgraduate study or research, and propose to begin a doctorate at the University of Oxford in October 2005 in the study of any aspect of Greek culture and civilization from the Bronze Age to AD 1453. While the Committee will interpret this in a wide sense (especially geographically) candidates who are in any doubt whether their proposal meets the criteria should contact the Secretary for Graduates, Merton College. This award is not available for studies relating to Modern Greece, or at any other university.

Details of the award may be obtained from the Secretary for Graduates, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (fax 01865 286500, e-mail julieg@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk).

The closing date for applications is 31 January 2005.
