EVAN LEWIS-THOMAS LAW BURSARIES AND STUDENTSHIPS 2006-07

The Council of Sidney Sussex College offers annually, for men and women, a number of Evan Lewis-Thomas Law Bursaries and Studentships for research or advanced courses in Law or cognate subjects in the University of Cambridge. If candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, elections will next be made in May 2006. Under the terms of the will of the late Judge Evan Lewis-Thomas, candidates must have shown proficiency in Law and Jurisprudence, normally by obtaining a university degree in Law by August 2006, and they must be or become candidates for the Ph.D. Degree, the Diploma in Legal Studies, the Diploma in International Law, the M.Phil. Degree (one-year course) in Criminology, or the LL.M. Degree. Only candidates for the Ph.D. Degree may apply for Evan Lewis-Thomas Studentships offered by the College. Candidates for the Ph.D. Degree may also apply for other studentships offered by the College for which they are eligible.

The Evan Lewis-Thomas Law Bursaries and Studentships, which are subject to reviews of diligence and progress, are tenable for one year in the first instance but may be renewed annually up to a maximum of three years. Their value will depend on the candidate's needs in the light of support from other sources and on the availability of income from the Evan Lewis-Thomas Fund. All holders of Evan Lewis-Thomas awards will receive at least £1,000 per annum, but Studentships of larger value, up to full support of fees (at the 'Home' rate) and maintenance, may be awarded.

Election may be made conditional upon satisfactory results in degree examinations and is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted by the Board of Graduate Studies if he/she is a candidate for the Ph.D. Degree, the M.Phil. Degree or a Diploma, or by the Degree Committee for the Faculty of Law if he/she is a candidate for the LL.M. Degree. Application for acceptance by the Board or the Degree Committee is made through the Board under the Cambridge Intercollegiate Graduate Application Scheme 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RZ, UK. Preference will be given to candidates who will be under twenty-six years of age on 1 October 2006, though special circumstances (e.g. military service) can be taken into account.
