Robinson College


Robinson College has recently established a research Scholarship in the Humanities in honour of its founding Warden, Lord Lewis of Newnham, who will retire in 2001. The Scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence, and the College proposes to elect a suitably qualified graduate student to the first such award from October 2001.

Value: the maximum annual value of the Scholarship will be £3,000; Scholarships of a lesser value may be offered at the discretion of the Awarders. (The successful candidate will also be guaranteed accommodation in the College for his or her first year, though at normal costs.)

Eligibility: (i) applicants from any country seeking admission to Robinson College as their first choice to read for a higher degree in the University of Cambridge. Preference will be given to those embarking on study which will count towards the Ph.D. Degree or to those applying for one-year courses who can provide evidence of an intention to register thereafter for the Ph.D. Degree; (ii) existing members of the College who fulfil the same criteria.

Election in all cases will be conditional upon admission by the Board of Graduate Studies of the University (4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ).

Tenure: one year in the first instance, but renewable for a further two, or exceptionally three, years, subject to satisfactory academic progress.

The Scholarship may be held in conjunction with other awards, though may be subject to appropriate reduction. Applicants will be required to apply for all other research awards for which they are eligible. In particular, overseas students are expected to apply for Overseas Research Student Awards.

To be considered for this Scholarship, please write to the Graduate Tutor, Robinson College, Cambridge, CB3 9AN, enclosing a curriculum vitae, details of the postgraduate degree you are applying for, and a statement of research aims as outlined above. The closing date for applications is 30 March 2001.
