Pembroke College

The following entrance awards are available:

COLLEGE RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS

Each year the College hopes to award a variety of studentships up to the value of three fully funded studentships. A fully funded studentship, where awarded, would pay a student's College and University fees and a maintenance allowance of £9,000 p.a. In practice most awards are partial awards, matching other funding thus allowing more candidates to receive studentships. Preference in awarding these studentships will be given to candidates who intend to register for a Ph.D. degree at Pembroke. However, candidates registering to study for an M.Phil. will also be considered for an award if they are intending to carry on to a Ph.D. after they have finished their M.Phil.

THE THORNTON GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN HISTORY

THE ZIEGLER GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN LAW

THE NAHUM GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN PHYSICS

THE BETHUNE-BAKER GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN THEOLOGY

THE BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES

The College hopes to award these graduate scholarships in history, law, physics, theology and the biomedical sciences to candidates who intend to register for the Ph.D. Degree at the University of Cambridge. The Scholarships will have a value sufficient to pay College fees for three years. Moreover, additional awards, of up to the equivalent of University fees for a Home student (£3,085 in 2005-6), may be made to individual applicants, depending on need and the availability of funds.

CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPEAN SCHOLARSHIP

The College is offering a one-year scholarship to a graduate student from one of the Eastern European countries of the European Union (currently the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia or Slovenia). The scholarship is intended to support the M.Phil. degree or the Diploma, with a preference for Economics or related subjects. Candidates should also apply concurrently for funding from the Cambridge European Trust. It is intended that the two awards together will provide funding for College and University fees. They will also provide either full or partial maintenance for the duration of the M.Phil. course, depending on the candidate's other sources of income.

THE GROSVENOR-SHILLING BURSARY IN LAND ECONOMY

One bursary is available each year for a student applying for a graduate course leading to a Ph.D. in Land Economy. The bursary would be a one-time payment of £500.

GENERAL GRADUATE BURSARIES

Up to five other graduate bursaries are also available, irrespective of subject of study. These are awarded on merit to students at or before the commencement of a graduate degree. They can often assist the other funding applications of those candidates who are suffering from a funding shortfall. Each is a one-time award, usually of £500.

THE PEMBROKE AUSTRALIAN SCHOLARSHIP

One or two one-time awards, each of a value of £500, may be made annually from a Fund provided by an Australian Committee which raises money for this purpose. Applicants must normally reside in Australia and hold a qualification from an Australian tertiary institution. There is no restriction as to the academic field.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR ALL THE ABOVE AWARDS

All applicants for any of these awards must apply in the first instance to the Board of Graduate Studies on the GAF (available from the Secretary, Board of Graduate Studies, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ or on-line). The awards are conditional on the selected students being admitted as a registered Graduate Student by the Board of Graduate Studies with effect from 1 October each academic year. Candidates should indicate on this form that they are applying for a Pembroke College award, and in making awards preference will be given to those who nominate Pembroke as their college of first choice.

All candidates are expected to apply for Research Council awards, and for the University's Domestic Research Studentships and Millennium Scholarships, if they are eligible. A candidate who is liable for University fees at the overseas rate is expected to apply through the Board of Graduate Studies for an Overseas Research Students (ORS) award and an Overseas Student Bursary. The College will take into account candidates' income from other sources when making awards.

TRAVEL RESEARCH BURSARY IN THE ARTS

Owing to a generous benefaction from Professor J.R. Lander, the College is able to offer a travel bursary for the purpose of artistic or other cultural research, with a preference for the history of art (broadly defined). It aims to support residence and travel in any foreign country, for a period of at least two months in the summer vacation of 2006, in ways that will assist subsequent graduate study. Any current member of the University is eligible to apply for support in the summer before beginning either a M.Phil. or a Ph.D. course in any relevant subject at the University of Cambridge. The successful candidate will hold at least a conditional offer of acceptance for the relevant course. Preference may be given to those who plan to be graduate students at Pembroke College. The sum awarded will normally be £1,500.

Candidates should apply to the Tutorial Administrator, Pembroke College, Cambridge, CB2 1RF, by 15 April 2006, enclosing a c.v. and a full statement of travel and research plans. They should ask two academic referees to send a letter of support by the same date. Interviews will be held in late April or May.
