Clare Hall Awards Reception

It was with great pleasure that the President and Assistant Senior Tutor hosted a reception on Thursday, 20 June 2019 for Clare Hall students who have recently won College bursaries and awards.

The Boak fund also supports many of our graduate students' research, so they can travel to international conferences to present papers, do field work, and...
