H.M. Chadwick Fund: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 734

The Committee of Managers of the H.M. Chadwick Fund invite applications for studentships tenable from 1 October 2006 to support study of or research in subjects A and B as listed hereunder. The Fund can make provision only for supplementary support, and the value of the Studentship will be determined in each case by the Committee of Managers, after taking into consideration the amount of any other emoluments received by the applicant. The Committee of Managers may award more than one Studentship. Each Studentship will be tenable for one year in the first instance, and may be renewed and its value reviewed, subject to a maximum tenure of three years. The value of a Studentship does not normally exceed £500. Graduates or research students of any university in the United Kingdom or Eire are eligible for a Studentship, but preference will be given to applicants who are graduates or Graduate Students of this University, or applicants for admission as a Graduate Student.

Applications are also invited for grants, including travel and subsistence, for attendance at courses or conferences or for any purpose which promotes the study of or research in any of the subjects listed hereunder. Grants may be awarded to any member of the University. As the available resources are limited grants can only be on a modest scale.

The subjects for which studentships and grants may be awarded are as follows:

A. The history, literature, thought, religion, sociology, antiquities, and art of any of the peoples of the British Isles or of the Scandinavian peoples before A.D. 1050, or of the Teutonic or the Celtic peoples collectively before A.D. 600.
B. The same subjects in relation to any people or peoples of the Near East primarily before 1000 B.C.
C. The same subjects in relation to any modern primitive people or peoples in respect of their native culture.
D. Subjects included in the general history or comparative study of civilization, literature, thought, religion, sociology, or art, but subjects which are wholly or mainly concerned with Western Europe since A.D. 1050 or with the Classical periods of Greece and Rome or of India or with any other period of similarly advanced culture are excluded.

The award of studentships and grants will in general require knowledge of the language or languages involved, but will in general exclude studies of purely linguistic interest, physical anthropology, studies of primarily medical interest, archaeology relating to the Stone Age, or studies wholly concerned with material culture.

An application for a Studentship must be made on a prescribed form, available from the Secretary, Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic, 9 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DP, or may be downloaded from the Departments website:, and must include a detailed statement describing the project for which support is sought, together with a curriculum vitae of the applicant and the names and addresses of two referees. Any other emoluments received or expected to be received must be disclosed. An application for a grant must be made on a prescribed form, available from the Secretary, Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic, 9 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DP or may be downloaded from the Department website: All candidates whether applying for a Studentship or for a grant, or for both, should provide the referees whose names appear in their applications with copies of a prescribed reference sheet (also available from the Departmental Secretary or Department website).

All applications, whether studentships or grants, should be addressed to the Secretary, Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic, 9 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DP, so as to arrive not later than 1 June 2007 Referees should send completed reference sheets to the same address by 15 June 2007. The Committee of Managers expect to meet to consider applications in late June or early July. All recipients of awards from the Fund will be required to submit brief reports on the work, which they have undertaken in connection with their awards.
