Magdalene College


The College invites applications for a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship from well-qualified candidates who will be studying at the University of Cambridge for a Ph.D. Degree. The Scholarship is tenable for up to three years from 1 October 1998 and there is no restriction of the field of study. Candidates must have graduated at a University before 1 October 1998 and consideration will normally be restricted to those who have obtained, or who have a strong prospect of obtaining, a first-class Honours degree (or its equivalent).

In determining the value of the Scholarships in individual cases, the College will take into account candidates' income from all sources. A maximum award of £9,521 a year (at 1997-98 values) will be made to a Scholar who has no other sources of finance as follows;

(a) Maintenance grant: £5,295.
(b) University fees: £2,540.
(c) College fees: £1,686.

The successful candidate will receive a minimum award of £500 a year regardless of their other resources. Candidates will be expected to apply (where eligible) for State or Research Council Studentships.

Rented accommodation in or near College will be made available during the first year of residence to an unmarried Scholar. A married Scholar will be offered rented accommodation near to the College.

Those wishing to be considered for a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship must also apply to the Board of Graduate Studies, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, for admission to the University as a Graduate Student using the usual C.I.G.A.S. form which is obtainable from the Board. Preference will be given to those nominating Magdalene as their first-choice College.

Candidates liable to pay University fees at the Overseas rate will be expected to apply not only for O.R.S. awards under the scheme administered by the U.K. Government but also for Overseas Student Bursaries awarded by the University of Cambridge and organized by the Board of Graduate Studies. Applications should reach the Board as soon as possible and not later than 31 March 1998.

In addition, all candidates should complete a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship application form which can be obtained from The Tutor for Graduate Admissions, Magdalene College, Cambridge, CB3 0AG. Applications should be returned to The Tutor for Graduate Admissions by 1 May 1998.
