The Frere Exhibition for Indian Studies
Entries are invited for the Frere Exhibition for Indian Studies, which is for the encouragement of the study of matters relating to India. A Board of Management administers the fund, awarding grants as well as electing to the Exhibition.
The Exhibition and grantsThe Exhibition is awarded to enable its holder to undertake a specified piece of work, approved by the board, in the field of Indian Studies. The work must be carried out at Oxford unless the board, in the interests of the work, gives leave to the exhibitioner to carry it out elsewhere for one or more terms. Candidates should specify in the application where, if elected to the Exhibition, they would wish to pursue their work.
The Exhibition is offered once in each academic year in Trinity Term and is tenable for one year from 1 October. Its value is likely to be of the order of £2,500 but may vary from year to year. The Board of Management may take into account the financial resources already available to the successful candidate. The Board of Management may, exceptionally, extend the Exhibition, at the end of the year, for a period not exceeding one further year: current exhibitioners must re-apply by the closing date to be considered for re-election.
The Board also awards grants to encourage the study of matters relating to India. Only candidates for the Exhibition will be considered for the award of such grants in any one year.
EligibilityThe Exhibition is open to all members of the University who, on the day of election, have not exceeded twenty-one terms from their matriculation. In recent years successful applicants have been well advanced in their research.
