Merton College

GREENDALE SCHOLARSHIP 2004

Merton College proposes to elect a Greendale Scholar from 1 October 2004. Greendale Scholarships are for Swiss nationals or Swiss residents, who are graduates of, or in their final year of study at, a Swiss university. The term 'Swiss resident' means an individual of whatever nationality who holds a category 'B' or a category 'C' residence permit issued by the government of Switzerland. Candidates should have completed their first degree between 1 May 2001 and 1 October 2004 and should have spent no more than two years in postgraduate study or research. The Scholarship will run for up to three years. It covers all University and College fees, College single accommodation (if required) for the first year of the Scholarship, after which accommodation will be via MCR room ballot, and a maintenance grant equivalent to that of the AHRB doctoral maintenance award (c. £9,000 for 2003-04), net of accommodation charges where applicable.

The Greendale Scholar will be required to register for a degree course or some other formal qualification within Oxford University. In no circumstances will a Scholarship be conferred upon someone who is not able to enter the University in October 2004.

Further particulars and copies of the application form may be obtained from the Secretary for Graduates, Tutorial Office, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (tel. 01865 276299, fax 01865 286500, e-mail julieg@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk). The closing date for applications and references is Friday, 27 February 2004.

DOMUS GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Merton College is offering three or four Domus Graduate Scholarships in 2004, in two separate competitions, A and B. The Scholarships are intended to assist students of outstanding academic excellence who for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to study at the University of Oxford. They cover College and University fees, College single accommodation (if required) for the first year of the Scholarship after which accommodation will be via MCR room ballot, and a maintenance grant equivalent to that of the AHRB doctoral maintenance award (c. £9,000 in 2003-04), net of accommodation charges where applicable. Subject to satisfactory progress, the Scholarships will be tenable for three years.

Competition A is open to graduates of any university, other than Oxford, who have not previously studied for a degree at Oxford, and who are not ordinarily resident in the UK, and have not completed more than two years of postgraduate study or research, and propose to begin a course of study leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford in October 2004 in any of the subjects normally acceptable for graduate study at the College, and have no other funding which would allow them to do so. The College intends to award two Scholarships. The closing date for this competition is 27 February 2004. Applicants who have not been accepted as doctoral students by the relevant Faculty or Department of the University by Friday, 12 March 2004 will be rejected. This process, over which the College has no control, may take about two months. Those interested in applying for the Scholarships should contact the Secretary for Graduates, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (tel. 01865 276299, fax 01865 286500, e-mail julieg@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk) as soon as possible to request further particulars. Those who have not already applied for admission to the University are advised to contact the Oxford University Graduate Admissions Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford, OX1 2JD (e-mail graduate.admissions@admin.ox.ac.uk), or the relevant department of the University. They should also consult the University's Graduate Studies Prospectus, obtainable from the Graduate Admissions Office, and on the University's home page at http://www.ox.ac.uk/, where departmental addresses and other important information may be found.

Competition B is open to graduates of any university with a first class honours degree, who are ordinarily resident in the UK, and have not completed more than two years of postgraduate study or research, and have been accepted to begin a course of study leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford in October 2004 in any subject normally acceptable for graduate study at the College, and have no other funding which would allow them to do so. The College intends to award one or two Scholarships. Those interested in applying should contact the Secretary for Graduates as above. Enquiries may be made at any time after 1 January 2004, but applications should be submitted no earlier than 13 August 2004. The closing date will be 3 September 2004.
