Brough Sanskrit Awards
This year there are 3 awards of up to £1,200 for SOAS postgraduate research and master's students who use Sanskrit in their work and will use the funds for research activity such as fieldwork trips (e.g. to manuscript libraries, etc), or conference and workshop attendance.
(i) The funding is for students who use Sanskrit in their work. Evidence of this should be provided in your application.
(ii) We cannot normally hold an award over into the next academic year if a candidate does not make the trip or attend the conference or workshop when intended: a re-application has to be made.
(iii) For research degree applicants only - Overseas fieldwork is normally undertaken in the second full-time year and cannot normally be undertaken in the first year of enrolment or during the last year of the student’s prescribed enrolment period. Exceptional requests for fieldwork in the third full time year are subject to the approval of the Associate Dean Research.
Successful candidates must be transferred to PhD status and had their fieldwork formally approved by the School before they can claim their award.
Research degree students on Continuation (Writing-up) are not eligible for fieldwork/workshop awards but may apply for conference funding.
(iv) Any student accepting a Brough Sanskrit award for fieldwork, workshops and conference must be enrolled (i.e. full-time, part-time or study leave status) for the academic year in which he/she applies and for the academic year in which his/her award is taken. In addition to this, research degree students on Continuation (Writing-up) may also be eligible to apply for conference funding.
(v) The student must submit a brief report, signed by the supervisor, to the Scholarships Officer within one month of the end of the fieldwork visit, conference or workshop.
(vi) Retrospective applications for a Brough Sanskrit Award will be considered but will not be given priority.
(vii) If you have already had a Brough Sanskrit Award, you can be considered for another award in a different academic year. If you have already had a Brough Sanskrit Award, you may not apply for a Fieldwork Award or for the Doctoral School conference funding. If you have already had a Fieldwork Award or conference funding from the Doctoral School, you may not apply for a Brough Sanskrit Award.
(viii) For conference funding, priority may be given to students who have been invited to present a paper at the conference.
