Schiff Foundation: Notice


Statutes and Ordinances, 1997, p. 809

The Managers expect in 1998 to elect up to three George and Lilian Schiff Studentships, tenable in the University, for full-time postgraduate work in engineering, applied physics or related sciences.

The holders of the Studentships must undertake a full-time course of postgraduate work in the University, approved by the Managers, in the fields of engineering, applied physics or related sciences. Applications are encouraged from outstanding candidates with a background in other disciplines who now wish to work in these fields, and from candidates within one of these fields who wish to broaden or change their work to another aspect or aspects of the fields. In addition to those who wish to concentrate on research work, encouragement will be given to candidates who wish to undertake relevant training in addition to research work. Applications from candidates who wish to proceed to the Ph.D. degree or other postgraduate qualification in the relevant field are invited. The Studentships are not normally intended for support of candidates who have nearly completed their course.

The Studentships will normally provide full cost support comprising approved College and University fees (at the Home, EC or overseas rate, as appropriate) and maintenance at the standard EPSRC rate plus £500, together with any fee approved by the Managers for training. In fixing the value of the Studentship account will be taken of other resources available to the Student, including other awards held. The Studentships will normally be held, subject to satisfactory progress, for the prescribed duration of the course. In accordance with the wishes of the benefactor, preference may be given to candidates who are British nationals.

An application form and forms for referees are available from the University Registry, The Old Schools, Trinity Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1TN. The closing date for receipt of applications and completed reference forms is 31 May 1998.
