About the Arthur Stockwin Scholar’s Fund

St Antony’s is delighted to announce the Arthur Stockwin Scholar’s Fund which will support students at the College to do fieldwork and research in Japan. Each year for the next five years (starting in the academic year 2023/24), one grant of £6500 will be awarded to a student studying for a research degree (MPhil and DPhil) at St Antony’s to carry out fieldwork in Japan. The award is open to students of any nationality and who are pursuing any discipline.

Awards are made on the basis of academic achievement.

The Arthur Stockwin Scholars Fund is generously supported by Dr David Asher (DPhil International Relations 1995) and Linda Asher. By setting up this fund, David wishes to express his respect for Arthur Stockwin and show how vital his legacy is to his students.
