Cambridge Political Economy Society Trust

(Registered Charity No. 291310)

The CPES Trust was established in 1985 by the Cambridge Political Economy Society (which produces The Cambridge Journal of Economics and Contributions to Political Economy). Its stated aims are (1) to advance the education of the public in political economy and related matters, and (2) to promote research in matters pertaining to political economy and to publish the useful results of such research. The Trustees interpret this to include all studies within the social sciences that are germane to economics, and applications are welcomed from other Faculties.

Fully-funded three-year Research Scholarship

Please note that this scholarship is not being awarded in 2009.

Supplementary Grants

Supplementary grants are made by the Trustees in (1) cases where a modest grant will enable a research student registered for the Ph.D. Degree to complete a Ph.D. dissertation or (2) cases where a small grant may help the procurement of funds from elsewhere. Although all eligible students may apply, priority is normally given to those nearing the end of their studies. The current deadlines for applications for supplementary funding are 1 January and 1 July. The Trustees wish to use their funds to support as many students as possible, and therefore expect all candidates who are eligible for public funding (including ORS awards and ESRC Studentships) to have made such applications.

Emergency Funding

The Trustees may make up to six grants annually, to a maximum of £1,000 each. These grants are only for eligible research students who can show that they are in immediate and unanticipated financial need. There is no deadline. Applicants should demonstrate that they have exhausted all other funding possibilities and have no other means of meeting the expenses for which they are applying.

Application forms for the Graduate Research Scholarship, Supplementary Funding and for Emergency Funding may be obtained from the Chairman of the Trustees, by email to cje@econ.cam.ac.uk. Applications should be made by email if at all possible.
