Tiarks German Scholarship Fund: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2005, pp. 700 and 868

SCHOLARSHIPS

The Electors to the Tiarks German Scholarship give notice that they are prepared to receive applications, which must be sent to the Head of the Department of German, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA, so as to reach him not later than 31 July 2006. Candidates must send with their application a statement of the course of advanced study or research which they propose to undertake if elected, and the means by which it is proposed to finance the course, including all sources of income, available or applied for, and the names of two referees.

Any person who is or is about to be registered as a Graduate Student in the University is eligible for the Scholarship, but preference may be given to candidates in their second year of work towards the Ph.D. Degree.

The Scholarship is tenable for one year, from 1 October following the election. Some considerable portion of the year must be spent in Germany or some other German-speaking country, though the Electors may in special cases relax this restriction. It will be the duty of the Scholar to undertake advanced study or research in the language or literature of Germany, under the direction of the Head of the Department of German, according to a scheme to be approved by the Electors.

The stipend of the Scholarship will amount to not more than £9,000 and will be determined by the Electors after taking account of any other financial resources that may be available to the Scholar. In recent years the Electors have normally contributed up to £4,000 towards a student's expenses for up to two years. The stipend will be paid in two equal instalments on 1 October and 1 February following the election. The Electors have power to withhold the second instalment if they are not satisfied that a Scholar is pursuing his or her studies with sufficient diligence.

The Scholar is eligible for re-election on not more than two occasions. The election will be made in September 2006.

BURSARIES

The Electors to the Tiarks German Scholarship give notice that they intend to award Tiarks Bursaries for the academical year 2006-07. The Bursaries will have a value of up to £7,000, depending on the other sources of income available to the successful candidates. In recent years the Electors have normally contributed up to £3,000

Applications are invited from candidates for the M.Phil. in European Literature offering themselves for examination in at least one German module in 2007, or from Graduate Students in the Department of German who in 2006-07 will be in their first year of work towards the M.Litt. or Ph.D. Degree. Applications, stating the course of study or research which it is proposed to undertake in 2006-07 and the means by which it is proposed to finance the course, including all sources of income, available or applied for, in that period, must be sent to the Head of Department of German, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA so as to reach him not later than 31 July 2006. Applicants for the Bursaries should state that they are willing for the papers they have submitted as applicants for admission to the relevant courses to be scrutinized by the Electors.

The Bursaries will be paid in two equal instalments on 1 October 2006 and 1 February 2007. On the second occasion the Bursars will be required to satisfy the Electors that they are diligently pursuing the proposed course of study or research. If the Electors are not so satisfied they have power to withhold the payment of the second instalment.

It is expected that the award will be made in September 2006.
