1. The University accepts with gratitude the gift of £20,000 from Mrs E. Harrison in memory of Professor Martin Harrison, and any further sums which may be contributed for the same purpose, to establish a fund, to be known as the Martin Harrison Memorial Fellowship Fund. The fund shall be used to provide fellowships to assist Turkish archaeologists working in any area of the archaeology of Anatolia, from Prehistory to the Ottoman Period, to visit the United Kingdom and Oxford in connection with their research work. Beneficiaries of the fund shall be known as Martin Harrison Memorial Fellows.
2. A committee of five members representative of a broad range of Anatolian archaeology shall be appointed jointly by the Board of the Faculty of Classics and the Committee for the School of Archaeology to oversee the administration of the fellowships.
3. The fellows shall be chosen annually by the committee with the assistance of the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara or other appropriate bodies.
4. The fellowships shall be open to junior archaeologists from Turkey who are unable to take advantage of opportunities for travel that are available to senior scholars, and shall normally be awarded for visits lasting between four and thirteen weeks. Preference may be given to Turkish archaeologists working on British-funded projects in Turkey.
5. The fellowships shall be tenable at St Hugh’s College, which shall provide accommodation for the fellows, and of the Middle Common Room of which the fellows shall be members.
6. The committee shall appoint an appropriate academic host in Oxford for each fellow, and the fellows shall be attached to the university body most appropriate to their field of research, normally the Faculty of Classics, the Committee for the School of Archaeology, the Committee for Byzantine Studies, or the Faculty of Oriental Studies, as shall be determined by the committee in each case.
7. Each fellow shall receive a grant of up to £1,500 per annum at December 1999 prices, index-linked, as shall be determined by the committee in each case. For this purpose the income of the fund shall be supplemented from capital if necessary. The grants shall normally be used for living expenses and other associated costs of the visit.
8. Council shall have power to alter this decree from time to time, provided that the main object of the fund, as defined in clause 1 above, is always kept in view.
