GILBERT MURRAY UN STUDY AWARDS OFFERED FOR 2013/14
1. The International Studies Committee of the Gilbert Murray Trust is offering up to 6 UN Study Awards of up to £500 each for 2013/14. This Committee promotes the study of the purposes and work of the United Nations.
2. An applicant for an Award must be studying, or have studied, international relations at an institution of higher education in the United Kingdom. International relations is understood broadly and includes, for example, international law, security studies, peace studies, development studies, and global governance. However, it is essential that applications are relevant to the purposes and work of the United Nations.
3. An Award is only given to support a specific project (such as a research visit to the headquarters of an international organisation, or to a particular country, or a short course at an institution abroad) which will assist the applicant in his or her study of international relations. It should be emphasised that the Junior Awards are not intended as general financial support for the study of international affairs.
4. An applicant for a UN Study Award for 2013/14 should on 2 April 2013 be not more than 25 years of age, but applications will be considered from those who are above this age if they are able to put forward special reasons for their delayed education (such as ill health or lack of means).
5. Applications for a UN Study Award for 2013/14 must be received by the Secretary of the International Studies Committee of the Gilbert Murray Trust (name and address below) not later than 2 April 2013.
6. Application should be by letter supported by the following documents:
a. a brief curriculum vitae, including date of birth
b. a brief statement of career intentions
c. a clear description of the project for which the Award is sought, with a breakdown of costs and the sources of additional funding, if required
d. an assessment by a person in a position to judge the applicant and his or her suitability for the Award
e. (where relevant) a statement of reasons for delayed education
7. Applicants are requested to submit five paper copies of the letter of application and the supporting documentation.
