Research Fellows

Below are selected college resources and tools for current Junior Research Fellows, Research Fellows and Governing Body Fellows.

Academic Fund for Governing Body and Research and Junior Research Fellows

The purpose of the fund is to support academic related needs for which there are no other sources available, including travel, conference fees, subsistence, and in certain circumstances, books.

Wolfson uses a gathered field system for apportioning grants from the Academic Fund, and each Fellow can claim up to £702 per financial year.  For any one gathered field allocation, there may be numerous applications and the total sums applied for by individuals cannot always be guaranteed.  The applications are assessed twice a term by the Academic Fund Panel.

The deadline for applications is twice each term on Wednesday of weeks 2 and 7, and will be considered by the Academic Fund Panel on Wednesday of weeks 3 and 8.

Completed applications should be sent to the Bursar's PA (bursars.office@wolfson.ox.ac.uk) by the closing dates set out below. 

NB: There is a separate Academic Conference and Seminar Account to support workshops, conferences, colloquia, lectures and seminars organised by Fellows and Students of the College, which will be held for the most part at Wolfson College.

Closing dates for applications to the Academic Fund: 

Michaelmas Term    21 October 2020    25 November 2020  

The Application Form can be downloaded below.
