JCR Research and Travel Grants

Most undergraduates and post-graduates are eligible for travel grants (post-graduates should apply to the Tutor for Graduates).  Preference will be given to third year undergraduates for travel at Easter, and second year undergraduates for travel during the summer vacation.

Undergraduate modern linguists and orientalists who require assistance for travel associated with the study of their language should obtain a blue form from the Treasury and apply to the Treasurer/Vacation Grants Committee for assistance.  If their travel is of a general nature and not directly associated with the language they are studying, they can apply for a summer vacation travel grant like any other undergraduate.

Deadlines for application are: 

  • 5th week of Hilary Term for the Easter Vacation; 
  • 5th week of Trinity Term for the Long Vacation.

Procedure for applying 

 

  • Complete application form (available online or from outside Principal’s Office)
  • Hand the form to your personal tutor who will complete the reference section and send it to the Principal.

If you apply for a grant from an outside body (College Secretary’s Noticeboard) you must indicate this on your application. 

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR APPLICATION IS COMPLETED AND RETURNED TO THE PRINCIPAL’S SECRETARY BEFORE THE DEADLINE

General Information

 

Most travel funds are tied to certain conditions; confined to named subjects, certain destinations or to whether the travel is of academic relevance to your course.  Selection is based on the following:

  • Your Personal tutor’s recommendation, your academic performance and a clear battels account.
  • Academic relevance to your course may affect the size of the grant received.
  • Whether you have received an award in the past.

Further information about the various travel funds is available on the table outside the Principal’s Office.
