Regents Park College Oxford

The William H. and Kathryn E. Brackney Angus Travel Bursary

The Angus Library and Archive at Regent’s Park College, University of Oxford, is the leading world-class collection for the study of Baptist and Nonconformist history and heritage. It comprises over 70,000 items relating to the life and history of Baptists from across the world, many of which are rare and unique. The Angus is connected to the Centre for Baptist Studies, a research centre of Regent’s Park College which aims to develop research and scholarship in Baptist history and theology and to relate Baptist history and theology to Baptist life and principles today.

Scholars from all over the world use the Angus Library and Archive for a wide range of research. While certain items in the collection have been digitised and are available online, the vast majority require scholars to visit in person to be able to access them. Thanks to the generosity of William (Bill) Brackney (1948 – 2022) we are able to offer an annual travel bursary to one scholar from the US or Canada to travel to the Angus and access material relevant to their research in person

We are, therefore, delighted to invite applications for the William H. and Kathryn E. Brackney
Angus Travel Bursary for the 2024-2025 academic year. This year the bursary is worth £1000.

The closing date for applications is the 12th of July 2024.
