This Friday, Wolfson's literary magazine Romulus will launch their new call for writers.
Lorne Thyssen Research Fund for Ancient World Topics
The fund supports the work of members of Wolfson College working on any aspect of the Ancient World. Members of Common Room may apply, but preference is given to Fellows and Students.
Funded activities include, but are not limited to:
- Research grants (these are meant to supplement existing research, but not to fund whole new projects) (up to £3000, collaborative projects involving more than one member of the Ancient World Cluster at Wolfson college up to £5000).
- Seed-corn funds to explore potential research projects, start up new projects, and for work related to securing further funds (up to £3000, collaborative projects involving more than one member of the Ancient World Cluster at Wolfson college up to £5000).
- Workshops, conferences, and colloquia organized by Fellows or Students of the College and held at Wolfson (up to £2000 for projects involving more than one member of college, but at least one Fellow; for all other projects, up to£1200).
- Participation in national as well as international conferences, workshops, colloquia, or academic exchanges, with a paper, poster or other activity (up to £1000 for Fellows, up to £400 for Students; those without access to other College funding will also be eligible for the higher amount).
- Field work (up to £1200).
- Support for publication of scholarly work (up to £2000)
Applications should be made in writing to Dr Diana Rodríguez-Pérez, Joint Director of the Ancient World Cluster (electronic submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org are preferred). Upon receipt, they will first be considered by the steering committee for the AWC and then forwarded to the Academic Committee. Deadline for application is the end of 3rd week of term for a decision in that same term.
Applications should include a cover letter and budget. References should be provided for grants over £1000. Graduate students should arrange for a letter of supervisor's academic support for the proposed activity. A CV for all applicants except Governing Body fellows. Applicants for grants above £1000 should display intent of applying to other sources.
Recipients should submit a short report on their work or how the grant assisted their work within 12 months of receiving the award. We strongly encourage recipients to ensure that both the name of Wolfson College and the source of the particular grant (Lorne Thyssen Research Fund for Ancient World Topics at Wolfson College) features prominently in any publications or publicity resulting from the research enabled by the grant.
