Christ's College


for study in the United States

(open to members of all Cambridge Colleges)

Two Fellowships are offered annually by the Jerome Levy Economics Institute at Bard College, New York, in association with Christ's College, to provide outstanding young graduates in Economics, or related subject areas, with the opportunity for a year's study partly based at the Institute. The Fellowships may be renewed for a further period of up to one year in appropriate cases.

The Levy Institute has been founded to 'pursue knowledge of economics that will enable nations to enlarge personal freedom, promote justice, and maintain stable economies with full employment and rising standards of living'. It is interested in research on such issues as unemployment, growth, inflation and deflation, developing economies, government spending and tax policies, trade imbalances, capital investment and productivity, business cycles and economic stability, efficiency and fairness, and other questions that concern nations around the world. The Institute offers special encouragement to applicants with research interests that utilize analyses of the macroeconomic determination of profits and the distribution of income, the rate of return on capital, and saving-investment relationships.

It is expected that one award each year will be made at each of the following levels:

(a) for a postgraduate student already engaged on a relevant research project;
(b) for a more senior worker, usually at postdoctoral level.

The Fellowships will each provide a substantial stipend ($15,000 at the postgraduate level; $20,000 at the postdoctoral level) together with free housing at Bard College, return fares to the United States, and a payment ($1,500 and $3,000, respectively) for travel within the United States. Selection of the Fellows will be made by a Committee appointed by Christ's College, Cambridge, but candidature is open to all members of the University.

Applications for the 1998-99 Fellowships should be made by 31 March 1998 to the Senior Tutor, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU, and should include a full curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of two academic referees, together with a brief account (1,000 words maximum) of the research area that would be pursued during tenure of a Fellowship. Advance applications for awards in 1999-2000 will also be considered if submitted by 31 March 1998.


Christ's College, Cambridge, offers a one-year Scholarship in History to graduates of any institution. The value of the Scholarship will be £6,000 with a supplementary maintenance allowance of £2,000; it will also pay for University fees and any reasonable research expenses. Candidates must have received their first degree by August 1998 and not have graduated earlier than June 1997. The Scholar must become a member of the College.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to support the opening year of a research career. It may be used to fund a year of study for a higher degree or a period of independent study.

Application forms and further details may be obtained from the Director of Studies in History, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU. Completed application forms should be returned to the same address by 1 July 1998.
