Stephen Copley Research Awards 2016: Announcement

Please see below for a notice from Daniel Cook on this year’s Copley Awards.  We’d also like to remind you that BARS’ new bursary with the Universities Committee for Scottish Literature has a deadline coming up tomorrow and that applications for the BARS/Wordsworth Trust Early Career Fellowship are due on July 1st.

The BARS Executive Committee has established these bursaries in order to support postgraduate and early-career research in the UK.  They are intended to help fund expenses incurred through travel to libraries and archives necessary to the student’s research.  As anticipated, this year we received a large number of applications, many of which were of a very high quality indeed.  Please do join us in congratulating the winners.

  • Raid Hussein Althagafy (Swansea)
  • Amy Boyington (Cambridge)
  • Colleen English (UCD)
  • Freya Gowrley (Edinburgh)
  • Sarah Louise Lovell (Durham)
  • Genevieve Theodora McNutt (Edinburgh)
  • Matthew Ward (St Andrews)

Once they have completed their research trips each winner will write a short report on their projects.  These will be published on the BARS website and circulated through our social media.  For more information about the bursaries, including reports from past winners, please see this page.
