Oxford University Burma Visiting Fund - deadline 11/07/16

5 July 2016

With generous philanthropic funding from the Blakey Foundation, in June 2016 the University was able to launch a visiting fund to support staff and postgraduate research students visiting the University of Yangon and potentially other Burma/Myanmar institutions to take part in guest teaching, supervision, joint research, staff training and curriculum development activities.

Please find attached a guidance note and an application form for the new Oxford-Burma Visiting Fund. The Fund, set up thanks to a donation from the Blakey Foundation, supports staff and postgraduate research students visiting the University of Yangon and potentially other Burma/Myanmar institutions to take part in guest teaching, supervision, joint research, staff training and curriculum development activities. Full details of the types of applications that the fund will look to support, the application procedure, and requirements of grant recipients can be found in the guidance note.

With apologies for the limited notice, the University is keen to make the fund available to support colleagues interested in visiting Burma/Myanmar this summer. The closing date for the first round of applications will therefore be midday on Monday 11 July (next Monday).

There is no need to provide more material than is required by the application form. Please submit completed forms to the International Strategy Office at international.strategy@admin.ox.ac.uk.
