Award Description

The Eugène Vinaver Trust, in association with the British Branch of the International Arthurian Society and under the terms of the Barron Bequest, offers a number of annual awards for postgraduate research in any field of Arthurian Studies.

The British Branch of the International Arthurian Society is a network of people, mostly from the UK, who take a scholarly interest in the literature, art, and film, of all periods, which is centred on the Arthurian legends, and the history and archaeology of the post-Roman and early medieval period in Western Europe.

Value of Award

The awards, currently of £1,250, are intended as a contribution to postgraduate fees.

Eligibility Criteria

The awards are open to graduates of any university in the British Isles, including those of the Republic of Ireland.

Preference will be given in the making of awards to support for full research degrees. Students who are awarded a grant for the coming year may apply for grants in future years on a basis of parity with those applying for the first time.

How to Apply

There is no standard application form. Instead, a leaflet is available giving details of information to be supplied by applicants in typed or word-processed form. The leaflet is available in electronic form on the Arthurian Society website along with further information and contact details.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 30th April of each year.
