Gonville and Caius College

Several W.M.Tapp Studentships are offered annually for research or other postgraduate study in Law. These studentships normally cover full fees and maintenance for the period of study. Their value depends on a number of factors (including a candidate's income from other sources) but awards are made in the region of £1,000 to £15,000 per annum.

Each year the College offers a Research Studentship in Biomedical Sciences (Stanley Elmore or Peter Wildy). The studentship consists of a maintenance grant and pays University and College fees at the 'Home' Rate. The College also has a Comyns Berkeley Research Studentship for students who have been accepted on the MB/Ph.D. programme. This studentship covers University and College fees (Home Rate) for the three years of the Ph.D. phase of the course. A maintenance grant, at the MRC Studentship rate, will also be paid during those three years. Students will be guaranteed a place at Caius for the Clinical phase of the course, but the funding for this should be arranged in the normal way from other sources. The studentship will next be awarded in1998.

Up to three Gonville Bursaries are awarded annually to overseas students, who have been accepted by the University and offered a place by the College. These cover the cost of College fees.

The College also awards up to ten Graduate Scholarships of £500 per annum, subject to annual review. Some of the scholarships are restricted by subject: Bellerby (Economics), Smart (Natural Sciences), Legg (Bio-medical Research), Hebbert (Engineering), James (Literary study), Frederick John Stopp (Languages), Ramadge (History). The others, two Perse Scholarships and two Bateman Scholarships, are open to all subjects. The scholarships are awarded to students who plan to do research towards a Ph.D., and who have named Gonville and Caius as their first-choice College. There are no application forms. All applicants will automatically be considered for a scholarship if their application reaches the College by 31 May 1998. (Candidates are advised to apply to the Board of Graduate Studies by 31 January 1998.)

The College is also able to give limited financial assistance in case of hardship.

Outstanding research students nearing the end of their research may apply for a Research Fellowship tenable for four years.

Further details for all awards are available from the Admissions Office, Gonville and Cauis College, Cambridge, CB2 1TA, or admissions@cai.cam.ac.uk, or on the College web site (http://www.cai.cam.ac.uk/). The closing date for studentships in Law and Biomedical Sciences is 15 January 1998.
