Kurt Hahn Trust: Notice

KURT HAHN TRUST/DAAD SCHOLARSHIP

The German Academic Exchange Service has offered one University of Cambridge Kurt Hahn Trust Scholarship for the academical year 2005-06. The Scholarship will normally be awarded to an outstanding postgraduate student or an undergraduate student at present in his or her final year, of British nationality, who wishes to spend a year in the Republic of Germany on a full course of study or independent research at a university or technical university. Candidates should have a good working knowledge of the German language. Further support for a specialised German language course can be made available as an additional part of the Scholarship. The detailed provisions of the Scholarship can be obtained from http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/ieo/hahn/ or the Secretary of the Kurt Hahn Trust, Fitzwilliam House, 32 Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1QY. The closing date for receipt of applications is 17 February 2006.

AWARDS FOR STUDY IN GERMANY

The Trustees of the Kurt Hahn Trust offer annual awards in the region of £400 towards expenses on courses in Germany designed to improve a student's knowledge of the German language and German culture and institutions. Applicants for these grants must be members of the University of Cambridge: either as undergraduate or Graduate Students. Students of German in the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages are not eligible. Preference will be given to applicants who have British nationality. Academic merit will not be the only consideration: evidence of more than usual enterprise, breadth of interest, and social awareness will also be considered. Applicants should ask their College Tutor and a Faculty member for references to certify that the award would be of benefit to their academic work. Application forms may be obtained from http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/ieo/hahn/ or the Secretary of the Kurt Hahn Trust, Fitzwilliam House, 32 Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1QY, to whom applications and references should be sent by 17 March 2006.

AWARDS TO GERMAN STUDENTS

The Trustees of the Kurt Hahn Trust invite applications for Kurt Hahn Scholarships for the academical year 2005-06. The Scholarships are intended to assist students of German nationality to pursue graduate studies at the University of Cambridge. Scholars, if not already members of the University, will be required to become so before the end of the Michaelmas Term 2005, and will be required to become a candidate for a Cambridge degree or to carry out approved research as part of a degree of their home university. Candidates should note that the Board of Graduate Studies usual deadline for applications for a research degree is 31 March in any year.

The Scholarships are tenable for one year only, and the value will depend on the financial circumstances of the Scholar, but will be in the region of £1,500 and will not cover the cost of University or College fees: the Scholarships are intended to be a contribution towards maintenance costs. Academic merit will not be the only consideration: evidence of more than usual enterprise, breadth of interest, and social awareness will also be considered.

Application forms may be obtained from the Secretary of the Kurt Hahn Trust, Fitzwilliam House, 32 Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1QY, to whom applications, together with two references, should be sent by 17 March 2006.
