Why should I apply?
Our landscape collections are pretty special.
Read this overview of our landscape collections or search our combined library, archive and object catalogue.
Take a look at reasons to use our landscape collections in your research and topic and resource ideas.
But could I apply?
A) A taught undergraduate or postgraduate student?
B) Studying landscape architecture, design or management? History, geography, architecture, environmental science, ecology or design?
C) Desperate to impress your dissertation supervisors?
D) Reading this before 28 Feb 2017?
Then we look forward to receiving your application! (Just ask us if you want to check you are eligible).
If you are a taught student in part or full-time higher education, you can apply for one of landscape student travel bursaries.
We welcome your innovative ideas on how you will use our collections in your research.
How do I apply?
The purpose of the student travel bursaries is to enable students to access collections held at Reading related to landscape, including landscape design, management and architecture.
We are offering 2 bursaries of £150 each.
Applications will be by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “Landscape Bursary” in the subject line). Applications will be invited from any student in part or full-time higher education.
Interested applicants should submit a CV, and a short statement (max 400 words) outlining their interest in and current work on landscape, stating how the bursary would be spent and how it would be beneficial to their studies. Applicants should identify those materials in the archive that would be of most benefit to them.
28 February 2017 – applications close
31 March 2017 – successful candidates announced
Any work will need to be carried out and monies claimed by 31 July 2017.
Please feel free to get in touch with our Reading Room if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you and telling you more about our landscape collections.
