Kellogg offers a variety of awards in acknowledgement of work carried out by students in relation to their studies or in support of something that has enhanced their experience of studying at Oxford.
Kellogg Community Engagement & Impact Award
All current Kellogg College students are eligible for consideration for a Kellogg College Community Engagement and Impact Award. These awards are made to students who have demonstrated a genuine commitment to community engagement, increasing impact, promoting knowledge exchange, or widening participation during the current academic year. Examples of community engagement and impact include, but are not restricted to, disseminating research to the public for example in schools and sites of historic or architectural interest, creating a research-related blog which has attracted proven interest in its content, developing computer applications of direct use to public users, engaging with wider media such as through an exhibition or use of social media, and mentoring.
Successful recipients of a Kellogg College Community Engagement and Impact Award will receive £250 in recognition of their achievements. Students may nominate themselves or be nominated by their Department, or be nominated anonymously by another Kellogg student but the nominated student must be a current student in order to be eligible. All applications must include a short reference from the student’s Supervisor or Course Director at Oxford, other references will not be accepted. If you nominate another Kellogg student, you will need to arrange a reference from their Supervisor or Course Director. Please include links to, or copies of, news articles, publications or web links that might assist the Award Panel.
All programmes of study with students at Kellogg College are invited to participate in this initiative and additional awards are reserved for students on programmes with large numbers of students at Kellogg College in recognition of the relationship between Kellogg College and departments.
To make a nomination
A short reference is required from either the nominee’s Supervisor or Course Director and should be emailed directly to email@example.com by noon on Monday Week 0 of Trinity Term, 20 April 2020. If you are a nominating Supervisor, you cannot also supply the short reference.
Students will be notified if successful by the end of May 2020 and will be invited to attend a drinks reception on 2 June 2020 to celebrate their success. Recipients of the award will be required to provide a short news item about their work, for the College website, and encouraged to participate in opportunities to present their research in College, for instance at the College’s Colloquium or Graduate Symposium.
Kellogg College is pleased to support its students and always welcomes reports of our students’ research activities and feedback on how the award has helped. Please send such news to firstname.lastname@example.org
Monika Tesarova Fund Bursary
Each year Kellogg College is pleased to offer a Monika Tesarova Fund Bursary of £100 made available due to the generosity of a College Fellow. The Monika Tesarova Fund Bursary exists to support a Kellogg student wishing to invest in their studies or take up an opportunity while studying at Oxford that they would ordinarily be precluded from doing due to financial constraints. While this does not have to be directly relevant to your studies (although it may be), it must be something that you believe will enhance your experience of studying at Oxford. You must be within fee liability to apply. For instance, you may wish to take part in a departmental trip, apply for an internship, or subscribe to an academic journal. These are just suggestions, and aren’t prescriptive or comprehensive. You will have your own idea of how the Monika Tesarova Fund Bursary may assist you.
If you would like to be considered for this year’s Monika Tesarova Fund Bursary, please email email@example.com introducing yourself, giving details of the opportunity you have in mind, and a brief explanation of the financial constraints that currently prevent you from doing this. Your email application will then be considered by the College’s Hardship Committee whose decision is final. The deadline for applications is noon on Friday Week 3 of Hilary Term, 7 February 2020. The successful applicant will be expected to provide a summary of how the Monika Tesarova Fund has assisted them.
