Allow me please to draw your attention to this recent notice of a new round of Visiting Scholars Awards, which provide financial support for travel and accommodation up to £2,000 to cover expenses over a two to four week period while carrying out research relating to the University’s Special collections.

There is scope within the scheme for you to make applications on behalf of colleagues from outwith Aberdeen if part of their includes discussion of their research and its findings on campus via a lecture or seminar, etc.
