Clarendon Scholarship
January

http://www.clarendon.ox.ac.uk/

Clarendon Scholarships are awarded to academically excellent students with the best proven and future potential. The Scholarships cover tuition and college fees in full and a generous grant for living expenses, and are open to students starting a new course at Oxford. They are highly competitive, with less than 7% of applicants selected for the scholarship.

In 2010-11, there were 297 Clarendon scholars at Oxford representing 46 different countries.

Whilst there are no quotas by course type, the majority of Clarendon scholars are working towards a DPhil (PhD). Scholarships are also awarded for 2-year graduate degrees (MPhil/BPhil/MLitt) or 1-year degrees (MSc/MSt/MBA/MFE).

A distinguishing feature of Clarendon scholarships is that scholars are selected from the leaders in their field - that is, academic departments nominate whom they believe are the most deserving of their place at the University of Oxford based on their academic record and ability to contribute significantly to their field of study, both in the present and future. This feature ensures the best and brightest minds are selected as Clarendon scholars.

London School of Economics - John C Phelan General Course Scholarship
March

http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/generalCourse/prospectivestudents.htm

Since 1910 there has been an arrangement for visiting students to pursue a year of fully integrated undergraduate study at LSE. This facility is called the General Course.

LSE believes strongly in the value of year-long study abroad and consequently doesn't offer any single-semester study options. This position ensures that all study abroad students have access to the full range of LSE's facilities and services, from the bars and refectories to the library and Careers Service. General Course students are looked after by their own Associate Dean; elect their own representative to the LSE Students' Union and have the support of a departmental tutor. Additionally, they are provided with their own bespoke social calendar.

John Phelan is a Member of the Board of the LSE Centennial Fund. His scholarships support the General Course, which he attended, and the Financial Management Group, whose work is close to his own professional interests as a distinguished money manager. There are three scholarships available for those starting the General Course in 2011/12. Each scholarship has a value of £7,000.

University of London School of Oriental and African Studies – The Endangered Language Project

http://www.soas.ac.uk/linguistics/elap/

The Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) offers research grants to support documentation of the world's endangered languages in collaboration with language communities.

The Endangered Languages Academic Programme (ELAP) is situated within the University of London SOAS' Department of Linguistics. ELAP conducts postgraduate teaching and research on the theory and practice of language documentation and description. Our goal is to develop the skills of those currently engaged in endangered language documentation and to train the next generation of language documenters.

ELAP offers courses and fellowships including:

  • A one-year MA in Language Documentation and Description, open to those with or without previous linguistics study. There are two pathways: a Field Linguistics pathway, and a Language Revitalisation and Support pathway;
  • A PhD in Field Linguistics, that includes fieldwork overseas;
  • Two year post-doctoral fellowships at SOAS with opportunities to carry out independent research, fieldwork and contribute to teaching.

Currently there are 16 MA and 16 PhD enrolled students.

ELAP also offers a comprehensive programme of public lectures, seminars, and workshops, and we collaborate with the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) staff in running research seminars, and training courses for grantees.

ELAP aims to preserve the diversity of human languages by supporting documentation of as many languages as possible, together with their social and cultural contexts, by:

  • encouraging fieldwork on endangered languages, especially by younger scholars skilled in language documentation
  • fostering the creation and preservation of a body of language resources for use by the linguistic and other social sciences, and language communities

Applications for grants are assessed for their intellectual quality, the degree of language endangerment, the urgency of the issues they raise, their relation to a language’s social and cultural contexts, and their prospects for raising levels of knowledge of the language and expertise in field linguistics, including among members of the language community. Projects should result in documentation materials that are:

  • accessible to and usable by members of the language community and the wider scientific community
  • as comprehensive as possible, including a range of recordings of language usage from everyday conversation to narrative, oratory, ceremonial speech, and verbal art, as well as transcription and analysis of such materials
  • represented and described using standard formats, conventions and theories in order to maximise access and use
  • cumulative, to allow data to be annotated and supplemented
  • secure against abuse, to protect the rights of the language community
  • properly archived, to provide long-term preservation of the data
  • contributions to the development of documentation methodology and the understanding of language endangerment
