The Boak Student Support Fund
This fund provides support for students of Clare Hall to pursue outstanding research and educational opportunities. These awards are in addition to the existing Tutors’ Fund for Research Support and are intended to facilitate research and/or conference attendance for those requiring substantial additional support. Awards are competitive and hence offered on a selective case-by-case basis with reference to academic merit and research potential.
The Boak fund aims to support elements of graduate students' research which would not otherwise be possible. It does not normally fund equipment or workshops, but exceptional cases might be considered. Students applying to attend a conference should normally be giving a paper to be eligible for funding. Travel or other expenses which are part of a course are not eligible for funding.
Awarded annually to two research students (one in Arts/Humanities & Social Sciences and one in the Sciences) whose completed PhD thesis and publications merit high commendation.
Current students are eligible to apply for the following awards from the Tutors’ Fund, details of which, together with application forms, are available in the Tutorial Office: These awards are available throughout the year.
Research awards of £100 are available to students in their first year of graduate study, and £250 to those in their second and third years, towards conference and computer expenses or for the purchase of books.
For unexpected financial hardship. Each case is decided on its own merits.
