Gilbert Murray UN Study Awards
Awarded by Gilbert Murray Trust
To study the purposes and work of the United Nations.
Awards are only given to support a specific project, such as a research visit to the headquarters of an international organization, or to a particular country, or a short research course at an institution abroad that will assist the applicant in his or her study of international affairs in relation to the purpose and work of the United Nations. The UK Study Awards are not intended as general financial support for the study of international affairs.
Open to persons of any nationality who are, or who have been, students at a university or similar institution in the United Kingdom. Candidates should currently be taking or should have recently taken part in a course of international affairs or international law and must not be over 25 years of age, although consideration will be given to those over that age in special cases.
Applicants must submit five copies, typed and on one side only, of a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, an outline of their intention with regard to a future career, full particulars of the purpose for which the award would be used and a supporting testimonial from a person capable of judging the candidate's ability to use the award profitably. Applicants must be currently registered on, or have recently completed, a degree programme at a UK University.
