To celebrate publication of the Historical Thesaurus of the OED (Oxford University Press 2009), the Department of English Language at the University of Glasgow has set up a scholarship fund to help students in their first year of research. Scholarships will consist of a waiver of the first year´s fees, and are open to exceptional students from any university intending to pursue research in a subject area, either historical or modern, covered by the Department. Scholarships for 2010-11 will be awarded to students accepted by the Faculty of Arts who are not major scholarship holders.
The scholarships will be named in honour of the four editors of HTOED: Christian Kay, Jane Roberts, Michael Samuels and Irené Wotherspoon. Further information about the department is available at: http://www.gla.ac.uk/departments/englishlanguage/
