Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 867

The Managers of the Smuts Memorial Fund invite applications for grants in support of study or research that would contribute to the advancement of Commonwealth Studies in the University. All applications must be made on the forms provided, which may be obtained from the Secretary to the Managers of the Smuts Memorial Fund, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ or downloaded from

The Managers have agreed not to make grants to undergraduates or to those following M.Phil. or other one- year courses; they will not ordinarily award grants for the financing of group expeditions; nor will they make grants to persons not returning to Cambridge at the end of their period of study abroad. The Managers do not normally expect to make more than one substantial award to a Graduate Student in the course of his or her research for a degree.

Applications for study grants are considered by the Managers once each term. The closing dates for applications are 1 January 2007 for consideration in the Lent Term 2007, 1 March 2007 for consideration in the Easter Term 2007, and 1 October 2007 for consideration in the Michaelmas Term 2007.

The Managers are prepared also to consider, at any time, applications for grants not exceeding £100 for the copying of documents in the field of Commonwealth Studies. Such grants are made on condition that the copies become the property of the Managers of the Fund and are deposited, in good order, on permanent loan in a library within the University. Applications should be made on a form available from 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ.
