Funding Opportunities

 

Masters Bursary Scheme

The Philological Society is pleased to offer a limited number of annual bursaries for students embarking on a taught postgraduate programme in the areas of linguistics or philology.  The intention is that the bursaries will make a contribution to maintaining and furthering the breadth and diversity of language-study in the UK by providing support for outstanding young scholars in the field. Each bursary is valued at £4000 p.a., which may be used for either fees or maintenance.  A bursary will not be granted to anyone who has full fees and maintenance from any other award but it may be used to supplement another award which covers only fees.  The application forms for the current competition are available on the right hand side of this page and of the Home page.

 

Travel and Fieldwork Bursaries

Student associate members are eligible to apply for bursaries to cover the cost of: (a) giving a paper at a conference in the UK or overseas, or (b) carrying out fieldwork (of long or short duration) in the UK or overseas. Applications should be supported by a letter from the member's supervisor and should be addressed to the Society's Hon. Treasurer, Dr. Philip Durkin (treasurer@philsoc.org.uk).

 

The R. H. Robins Prize

Every other year the Philological Society offers a seventh R. H. Robins student Prize for an article submission on a linguistic topic that falls within the area of the Society's interests as defined by present and past publications in the Transactions of the Philological Society. The Prize will be awarded in open competition. The competition is open to any individual or individuals who was/were both:

(i) registered students (at the time of submission); and,

(ii) Members or Student Associate Members of the Society (membership can be applied for at the time of submission).

The author(s) of the winning submission will receive a cash prize of £500 (shared equally between the authors of a jointly authored submission); the author(s) of the runner-up essay will receive a cash prize of £250 (again, shared equally as appropriate).  Additionally, the prize-winning and runner-up submissions, revised where appropriate in line with referees' comments, will be accepted for publication in the Society's journal, the Transactions of the Philological Society.
