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 (aboard 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. These awards are not intended for independent study projects which form part of a language year abroad.
Only available to full time undergraduates After completion of the research project, the award recipients are required to submit a report (of approximately 1,000 words) to be countersigned by their Supervisor. Only available to current students
