(with preference for the Sciences)
The College hopes to award a fully funded studentship annually, to pay all approved fees and maintenance equivalent to a state award for up to three years, subject to satisfactory performance. Eligible candidates must have listed Newnham as their College of first preference or have been accepted by Newnham, must be admitted by the Board of Graduate Studies with the intention of studying for a Ph.D. Degree, and must be of U.K. or E.C. status. A studentship holder who obtains support from other sources will receive a proportionately reduced award but, even if fully-funded, will receive an additional honorarium. Further particulars and application form may be obtained from the Tutor for Graduate Students, to whom applications and references must be returned by 1 April 1999. (Candidates are strongly advised to have applied to the Board of Graduate Studies by 31 January).
