New Hall

UNIVERSITY RESEARCH SCHEME

The College is a member of the University's Domestic Research Studentship Scheme. This is open to UK and EU students who wish to undertake research as registered Graduate Students in any field of study within the University - students must be registered as Ph.D. or prospective Ph.D. candidates.

Applications for this scheme are made through a Department or Faculty. Candidates for this shared studentship should name New Hall as their College of first choice on the Graduate Application Form and have to be nominated by their Department or Faculty. Applicants will be considered for an award in the summer preceding their October entry.

It is a condition of these awards that the candidates should also have applied for a studentship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) or other UK Research Council. This Studentship provides support similar to that of an AHRB Studentship (this includes University and College Fees where appropriate for UK and EU students, and UK applicants also receive an allowance for living expenses similar to that provided by the AHRC).

OVERSEAS BURSARIES

New Hall offers a number of Overseas Student Bursaries to assist women Graduate Students from outside the UK and EU by bridging small gaps in their funding. The Bursaries are intended for outstanding overseas students who might not otherwise be able to fund their studies in Cambridge. These awards are only available to students who list New Hall as College of first choice on the Graduate Application Form. No separate application is needed but candidates should write to the Executive Graduate Tutor at New Hall expressing their wish to be considered for a Bursary at the same time as they submit their Graduate Application Form to the Board of Graduate Studies. Candidates are advised that their applications should, if at all possible, arrive at the Board of Graduate Studies before 31 December of the year preceding entrance.

BP CENTENARY AWARDS

These awards are for overseas graduate students and comprise 4 one-year bursaries (of £2,000) for M.Phil. or L.LM students; 6 three-year bursaries of £2,000 per annum for PhD students (renewal after the first year is subject to satisfactory reports after the first and second years of research); and 2 three-year studentships of £8,000 per annum also for PhD students. Preference for award of the two types of bursary is given to students from Russia, Ukraine and countries of the former Soviet Union; China; the Middle East, particularly Egypt; Southern Africa; and South Asia. The application procedure and advisory deadline is the same as that for overseas bursaries.

THE STEPHAN KÖRNER GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP

The Stephan Körner Graduate Scholarship is available for a graduate student in Philosophy, Classics or Law to assist in funding a full one-year M.Phil. and/or 3-year Ph.D. course. It is only available to students who list New Hall as College of first choice on the Graduate Application Form. No separate application is needed but candidates should write to The Executive Graduate Tutor at New Hall expressing their wish to be considered for a Bursary at the same time as they submit their Graduate Application Form. Applications should arrive no later than 1 April.

ENTRANCE RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS

Any New Hall graduate student with a first class honours degree will automatically be considered for these studentships. The value of each studentship, tenable for 2005-06, will be £200.

NEW HALL GRADUATE RESEARCH FUND

New Hall graduate students may apply to the Fund three times a year for small grants to assist with their research expenses. These funds are generally available to help with travel expenses to gather data, to consult specialist collections, or to attend conferences. Consideration will also be given to other exceptional research costs. The grants can be used to supplement funds available from other sources such as departments and faculties.

TIMSON, WELBOURN AND TYARS FUND

These funds are available for supporting travel for Veterinary and Medical Students and are mainly used to support the expenses incurred by Clinical Students in connection with their electives or equivalent activities. Eligible students are contacted by email, where an address is known, with the details of the application procedure. Students at Clinical Schools other than Cambridge are therefore advised to ensure that the Tutorial Office has an active email address. The closing date is during the Lent Term.
