Girton College

GRADUATE RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIPS, STUDENTSHIPS AND BURSARIES

Girton College offers Graduate Research Scholarships, Studentships and Bursaries to qualified candidates from the UK or overseas from 1 October 2001, to be elected in June 2001. One Scholarship normally has the value of a British Academy maintenance grant, plus approved University and College fees (at home students' level only). The value of all the Scholarships, Studentships and Bursaries will be determined in the light of the successful candidate's income from other sources.

DORIS WOODALL STUDENTSHIP

The Doris Woodall Studentship worth approximately £750 is normally awarded for one year only for research in economics or an allied subject; this may be augmented by the College.

SIDNEY AND MARGUERITE CODY STUDENTSHIP

The Sidney and Marguerite Cody Studentship is for a period of travel and study in continental Europe of up to twelve months and normally of not less than six months. This Studentship has a value of £3,000 and is open to graduate members of any faculty except English who have completed less than nine terms in residence.

IDA AND ISIDORE COHEN RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP

The Ida and Isidore Cohen Research Scholarship is open to students working in Modern Hebrew Studies, and currently valued a £3,600. It is awarded for one year but may be renewed.

IRENE HALLINAN SCHOLARSHIP

The Irene Hallinan Scholarship is worth approximately £3,700. It is awarded for one year and is open to any subject.

OVERSEAS BURSARIES

A number of Overseas Bursaries, worth from £200 to £1,000 a year, are also available for applicants from non-EU countries. These are normally awarded for two years in the first instance for candidates for the Ph.D. Degree, and may be renewed for a third year on the basis of the first two years research. All recipients of College Overseas Bursaries will be expected to apply (if eligible) for an Overseas Research Studentship (ORS) and for any other awards open to them. Overseas students who are candidates for the Ph.D. Degree are also eligible to apply for the studentships listed above.

These awards are open to students who have graduated or will have graduated before 1 October 2001. A first-class degree is almost always required and election will be conditional on the candidate being granted Graduate Student status by the University of Cambridge. The holder must become a member of the College and either be a candidate for the Ph.D. Degree, or be enrolled on a course leading to the Ph.D. Degree. The awards will be for one year, and are normally renewable for one further year.

Application forms may be obtained from the Graduate Secretary, Wolfson Court (Girton College), Clarkson Road, Cambridge, CB3 0EH, and must be completed and returned by 31 March 2001 for the following October.
