The Quaker Studies Research Association and the Centre for Postgraduate Quaker Studies, (Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre and the University of Birmingham), are pleased to announce
The David Adshead Visiting Scholarship
The annual David Adshead Visiting Scholarship offers a first or second year full time (or first to fourth year part-time) research postgraduate five nights full board accommodation at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre enabling twenty-four hour access to the Quaker Collection there.
The late David Adshead set up the Centre for Quaker Studies at the University of Sunderland, the journal Quaker Studies and the George Richardson Lecture. His part in putting Quaker studies on the academic map helped other initiatives to grow and develop. Those who knew David remember his great enthusiasm for research and his care of his students. He was particularly encouraging of those just starting out on their research degrees, hence the focus of the Scholarship.
The time can be taken at any time in the year from a Sunday to Friday, subject to what else is happening at Woodbrooke.
Applicants need to send a copy of their research proposal, a letter of support from their Director of Studies, the preferred dates for the visit and how they hope to use the time and the Woodbrooke collection, and contact information.
The closing date for applications is January 30. Applications should be sent to:
QSRA (David Adshead Award), Ben Pink Dandelion, Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, 1046 Bristol Road, Birmingham B29 6LJ, England.
