History: The Morgan Fund is used to award prizes and travel bursaries to graduates reading History. Applications are made direct to the History Tutors on the K.O. Morgan application form on the Grants and Bursaries webpage.
******Please note that due to the impact of COVID-19 on travel, for this academic year History UG and PG students can apply to the Morgan Fund to buy History books relevant to the papers that they are studying, or the research that they are undertaking. They can also apply to the Morgan Fund to cover expenses related to thesis or dissertation research. Applications for book purchases up to a maximum of £100 per term can be submitted using the Morgan Fund application form. Applications can be made throughout the term before the deadline of Friday of 9th week. Receipts must be presented before payment of the award.******
