Undergraduate Research Awards
Deadline: 24 April 2015
Each year, six awards valued at £500 each will be made available to support full time undergraduates with the costs of an Independent Study Project (ISP).
An ISP is a one unit value course assessed by a 10,000 word essay on an approved topic of the student's choice and may be based on original fieldwork (abroad or in the UK), the critical analysis of documents and/or statistical materials, or may be an original synthesis of material derived from secondary sources.
The research to be supported by this award must be conducted in the vacation - normally the summer vacation of the preceding year.
Students applying for an Undergraduate Vacation Research Award must be registered full-time at SOAS for an Undergraduate Degree and not for a language year abroad.
The Advisory Panel on Undergraduate Vacation Research Awards is not normally prepared to meet the cost of travel to the home country of an overseas applicant and will do so only in exceptional circumstances.
Only available to full time undergraduates
After completion of the research project, the award recipients are required to submit a brief report to be countersigned by their ISP supervisor.
Only available to current students
The closing date for completed applications is Thursday April 24 2015.
