The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarships
The deadline for the Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarship for 2013 has now passed.
Full information on how to apply for 2014 will be published on this webpage in Autumn 2013.
The Christine and Ian Bolt Scholarships were set up in memory of Christine Bolt, Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Kent, and were generously funded by her late husband, Ian Bolt.
Scholarships of up to £10,000 each (to include tuition fees) will be offered for one year in support of a sustained period of research while in the USA. During this year the students must be registered on a full-time postgraduate degree by research at the University of Kent. In exceptional circumstances, the scholarship holders may be invited to re-apply for a further one year's funding.
Scholarships are aimed at full-time postgraduate students whose area of research has an American element and/or where the centre of expertise or an important source of research material is located in the United States of America.
The purpose of the fund is to award scholarships to deserving students studying in the Faculty of Humanities or Social Sciences at the University of Kent to support a sustained period of research in America for up to one year. Preference will be given to students and to candidates who have not had the opportunity to live or study for an extended period of time in the USA.
