Sidney Sussex College

RESEARCH STUDENTSHIP

The Council of Sidney Sussex College is offering a Research Studentship commencing in October 2002. The holder of the Studentship must be, or seek to be, a candidate for the Degree of Ph.D. in the University of Cambridge. The Studentship is tenable in any subject and is open to men or women from any country.

The holder of the Studentship must have graduated by August 2002, and election to the Studentship will normally be made conditional upon good results in degree examinations. The Studentship is intended for candidates who have already been awarded, or are likely to graduate with, first class Honours or the equivalent. Election is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted by the Board of Graduate Studies of the University. Application for acceptance by the Board is made through the Cambridge Intercollegiate Graduate Application Scheme (CIGAS), 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ. In the competition for the Studentship, first consideration will be given to candidates who nominate Sidney Sussex as their College of first choice on CIGAS Form A. Preference will be given to candidates who will be under twenty-six years of age on 1 October 2002, though special circumstances will be taken into account.

The Studentship is subject to reviews of diligence and progress, and is renewable annually up to a maximum of three years. The Studentship will meet the cost of University and College fees. The level of maintenance payments will be determined after considering the successful candidate's income from other sources. The holder of the Studentship will receive at least £1,000 a year, and a Student without income from other sources would receive full support (£7,500 a year in the current year), subject to annual review. In addition, the Student may apply for support for approved research expenses up to £350 a year. If funds permit, and suitable candidates present, the College may make more than one election, on similar financial terms.

An elected Student will normally be required to come into residence as a member of the College in October 2002. It is normally possible to provide a room in College or in one of the College's hostels for a single person. A College flat may be available for a married person. Completed applications must reach the Tutor for Graduate Students at the address below, not later than 1 March 2002.

EVAN LEWIS-THOMAS LAW STUDENTSHIPS, 2002-03

The Council of Sidney Sussex College offers annually, for men and women, a number of Evan Lewis-Thomas Law Studentships for research or advanced courses in Law or cognate subjects in the University of Cambridge. If candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, elections will next be made in May 2002. Under the terms of the will of the late Judge Evan Lewis-Thomas, candidates must have shown proficiency in Law and Jurisprudence, usually, but not necessarily, by obtaining a university degree in Law by August 2002. Normally, they must be or become candidates for the Ph.D. Degree, the Diploma in Legal Studies, the Diploma in International Law, the M.Phil. Degree (one-year course) in Criminology, or the LL.M. Degree. Candidates for the Ph.D. Degree who apply for these Studentships may also apply for the Research Studentship offered by the College.

These Studentships, which are subject to reviews of diligence and progress, are tenable for one year in the first instance but may be renewed annually up to a maximum of three years. Their value will depend on the candidate's needs in the light of support from other sources and on the availability of income from the Evan Lewis-Thomas Fund. All holders of Studentships will receive at least £1,000 a year, but Studentships of larger value, up to full support of fees (at the 'Home' rate) and maintenance, may be awarded.

Election to a Studentship may be made conditional upon satisfactory results in degree examinations and is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted by the Board of Graduate Studies if he or she is a candidate for the Ph.D. Degree, the M.Phil. Degree, or a Diploma, or by the Degree Committee for the Faculty of Law if he or she is a candidate for the LL.M. Degree. Application for acceptance by the Board or the Degree Committee is made through the Board under the Cambridge Intercollegiate Graduate Application Scheme (CIGAS), 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ. In electing to Studentships, first consideration will be given to candidates who nominate Sidney Sussex as their College of first preference on CIGAS Form A. Preference will be given to candidates who will be under twenty-six years of age on 1 October 2002, though special circumstances (e.g., military service) can be taken into account.

An elected Student will be required to come into residence as a member of the College in October 2002. It is normally possible to provide a room in College or in one of the College's hostels for a single person. A small number of College flats are available for married couples. Completed applications must reach the Tutor for Graduate Students not later than 1 February 2002.

Application forms for these Studentships may be obtained from the Tutor for Graduate Students, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, CB2 3HU.
