In May 2001 the College proposes to elect a number of graduate students to Benefactors' Scholarships, tenable from October 2001. These Scholarships are open to candidates in any discipline, but successful candidates in Law may be awarded J. C. Hall Scholarships; in History, Pelling Scholarships; and in Physiological Psychology, a Craik Scholarship. Other successful candidates will be awarded unnamed Benefactors' Scholarships.

Value The maximum annual value of the named Scholarships and up to six further Scholarships will consist of a maintenance grant of at least £6,620 (expected to be reviewed annually) and the following additional payments: (a) approved University and College fees; (b) a contribution towards expenses of travel and reasonable removal expenses from the Scholar's home; (c) an annual contribution towards the cost of a return journey home; (d) an annual Scholarship emolument of £150; (e) an annual book grant of up to £320. Financial assistance may also be given towards the cost of field work, attendance at conferences, and other essential academic expenses. The annual value of Scholarships beyond this number will consist of an emolument of £150 and a book grant of up to £320.

Eligibility (i) members of the College engaged in study which will count towards the Ph.D. Degree; (ii) applicants to the College (a) for admission as graduate students intending to register as candidates for the Ph.D. Degree; (b) for admission as graduate students for the M.Phil. Degree; (c) for admission to read for the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics (Part III of the Mathematical Tripos), with the intention of registering thereafter as candidates for the Ph.D. Degree.

Tenure For the normal minimum duration of the course subject to satisfactory academic progress. In the case of awards under (ii)(c), the Scholarship is renewable for three years subject to satisfactory academic progress, if a distinction is obtained in the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics.

There is no separate form of application for these Scholarships. All eligible applicants who by 1 May 2001 have accepted the College's offer of admission will be considered. Applicants should apply to the Board of Graduate Studies, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, and are advised to do so not later than 31 December 2000. This date is not a closing date for College purposes. It is advisory, and is suggested in view of the delays that may occur between the submission of applications and their receipt by the College, owing to sometimes lengthy consideration by the relevant Faculty or Department.

Suitably qualified Members of other Cambridge Colleges wishing to be considered are requested to inform the Tutor for Graduate Affairs by the end of the Lent Term 2001.

Applicants will be required also to apply for all other research awards for which they are eligible. In particular, overseas applicants are directed to apply for Overseas Research Student Awards. The value of any Scholarship awarded will be reduced appropriately to take account of payments from other sources. Election will be conditional upon admission by the Board of Graduate Studies.

Enquiries and requests for further information should be addressed to the Tutor for Graduate Affairs, St John's College, Cambridge, CB2 1TP.
