The Schulz Postgraduate Award for the Study of Education

In 1957, Adolf John Schulz bequeathed to the University £4,500 for the purpose of promoting postgraduate research work in the theory of education and the study of the German language, literature and culture generally. 

This allowed the establishment of the Schulz Postgraduate Award for the study of Education. Three awards will be available each year.

The awards will be available to postgraduate students of the School of Education undertaking a research project relevant to the theoretical study of education from varying perspectives.
