Dr Diana Walford, Mansfield's former Principal, has made a donation to the College which is to be put into a fund for the use of students. The purpose of the fund is to enable the College to make individual awards to students for academic and academic-related purposes. The College and University have a number of funds to which students can apply for support (details of College funds are outlined in the College Memorandum). The purpose of the Walford Fund is to meet needs which cannot be met by those other sources of funding.
Any undergraduate or graduate wishing to apply for an award from the Walford Fund should send a letter to Helen Etty (Academic Administrator), indicating the sum of money they wish to apply for, and how they would use the award.
The closing date for applications is Monday 6th week of Hilary Term. Awards will be made by a panel consisting of the Bursar, Senior Tutor and Tutor for Graduates. Enquiries about this award should be sent to the Senior Tutor.
Undergraduate Academic Grant Fund
The Undergraduate Academic Grant Fund’s main purpose is the support of study in the vacation: either while resident in Oxford, or for field trips and conferences; undergraduates may also apply to the fund for (e.g.) travel costs to another University library while at home and for contribution towards the cost of thesis binding. Awards will be made to students who have an academic need for a grant but are limited by financial constraints.
Application forms must be returned to the Academic Administrator by Friday of 7th Week in any of the three terms.
Graduate Travel Fund
Graduate students who are pursuing research degrees on three/two year courses (DPhil or equivalent) may apply to the college for financial support for attending conferences or other similar activities in connection with their research.
Applications must be made by Friday of 5th Week in any of the three terms.
Graduate Book Grant
Graduate students who are pursuing research degrees on three or two year courses (DPhil, MPhil or BPhil) or one year taught courses )MSc, MSt, MBA, MJuris and BCL) are eligible to participate in the graduate book scheme. Students in their fourth year of study are not eligible.
Applications must be returned to the Academic Administrator by Friday of 5th Week in any of the three terms.
If you have any queries relating to the above grants, please email the Academic Administrator.
