As a result of a generous Bequest from the widow of a former Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Dr Lewis Auber, the Council is pleased to be able to offer assistance for the furtherance of academic research in any of its branches. This scheme is awarded on a biennial basis.
Applicants should be: naturalised British citizens or desire to acquire British nationality (applicants cannot be British at birth), be over sixty years of age, reside in Scotland or England and be bona fide scholars engaged in academic research (but not industrial research).
