Arthurian Postgraduate Awards

The Eugène Vinaver Trust, in association with the British Branch of the International Arthurian Society and under the terms of the Barron Bequest, offers a number of annual awards for postgraduate research in any field of Arthurian Studies.

The awards are open to graduates of any university in the British Isles, including those of the Republic of Ireland. They may be held at any university in the British Isles, including those of the Republic of Ireland, except Owens College, University of Manchester.

The awards, currently of £1250, are intended as a contribution to postgraduate fees. Preference will be given in the making of awards to support for full research degrees. Students who are awarded a grant for the coming year may apply for grants in future years on a basis of parity with those applying for the first time.

There is no standard application form. Instead, a leaflet is available giving details of information to be supplied by applicants in typed or word-processed form. The leaflet is available in electronic form and attached below. Alternatively copies of the leaflet can be obtained from: Professor Jane Taylor, Garth Head, Penruddock, Penrith, Cumbria CA11 0QU; email: jane.taylor@durham.ac.uk.

The closing date for receipt of applications for the following academic year is 30th April.
