John Guest Phillips Travelling Scholarship

Deadline for applications: Thursday 29 March 2018

Two annual travelling scholarships to the value of £500 each, or one annual travelling scholarship to the value of £1,000, may be awarded to registered full-time postgraduate research students. The purpose of the scholarships is to ensure that promising research students are given the opportunity to extend their knowledge of their subject, either within this country or overseas. Note: The scholarships will not normally be awarded to fund conference attendance.

Projects that the scholarship has made possible in the past include:

  • a trip to Japan to study virtual house building techniques.
  • travel associated with fieldwork to determine the effects of increasing movement of seawater into river systems in south east England
  • travel to Sydney in order to progress research into eating disorders.

Please apply as follows:

  1. Apply for the award using the Nomination form, which also provides return information.
  2. Supply a supporting academic reference from your Personal Tutor or Head of Department. This must be submitted using the Supporting Reference Form. You will need to complete section A before forwarding the form (preferably as an email attachment) to your referee.

Both the application and the Departmental reference must be submitted by the deadline. Any recieved after the deadline will be disregarded.

The Assessment Panel will meet in April to select the successful applicants.
