Except for the Sandys and Laurence Studentships, all the Studentships and Scholarships are open to any person who is registered as a Graduate Student in the University, provided that at the date of the election not less than two complete terms have passed after the term of his or her admission as a Graduate Student. For the terms of eligibility for the Sandys and Laurence Studentships see below.

The Studentships and Scholarships are tenable from the date of the election until 30 September next following. A Student or Scholar is eligible for re-election on not more than two occasions. The emolument of each Studentship and Scholarship is at present £550.

The Walston Studentship (Statutes and Ordinances, 2003, p. 885) is for the furtherance of classical archaeology by facilitating for Cambridge students of archaeology or architecture visits to Greek lands.1 Such a scheme shall normally involve travel or residence in Greek lands for a period of not less than three months.

The regulations require the Student to spend a large part of the year at a foreign university or other place of learning (to be approved for this purpose by the Electors) such as the British School at Athens or the British School at Rome.

The Studentship is open to any graduate of the University who at the date of the election is of not less than three and not more than nine terms' standing from admission to his or her first degree; or to any person who is registered as a Graduate Student in the University, provided that at the date of the election not less than two complete terms have passed after the term of his or her admission as a Graduate Student.

The Electors may waive the normal requirement that some considerable portion of the year shall be spent away from Cambridge.

Up to three Laurence Studentships (Statutes and Ordinances, 2003, p. 792) are offered under the same terms as the Prendergast Studentship except that the Studentships are restricted to Graduate Students in the Faculty of Classics.
