Magdalene College

LESLIE WILSON RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP

The College invites applications for a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship from well-qualified candidates who will be studying at the University of Cambridge for a Ph.D. Degree. The Scholarship is tenable for up to three years from 1 October 2009 and there is no restriction of the field of study. Candidates must have graduated at a university before 1 October 2009 and consideration will normally be restricted to those who have obtained, or who have a strong prospect of obtaining, a first class honours degree (or its equivalent).

In determining the value of the Scholarships in individual cases, the College will take into account candidates' income from all sources. A maximum award of £18,367 per year (at October 2008 values) will be made to a Scholar who has no other sources of finance, i.e. maintenance grant of £12,940, University fees of £3,300, and College fees of £2,127. The successful candidate will receive a minimum award of £500 per year regardless of their resources. Candidates will be expected to apply (where eligible) for state or Research Council Studentships.

Rented accommodation in or near College will be made available during the first year of residence to an unmarried Scholar. A married Scholar will be offered rented accommodation near to the College.

Those wishing to be considered for a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship must also apply to the Board of Graduate Studies, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, for admission to the University as a Graduate Student using the usual GRADSAF form which is obtainable from the Board. Preference will be given to those nominating Magdalene as their first-choice College.

Candidates liable to pay University fees at the overseas rate will be expected to apply for Overseas Student Bursaries awarded by the University of Cambridge and organised by the Cambridge Trusts and the Board of Graduate Studies. GRADSAF application forms should reach the Board as soon as possible and not later than 15 October 2008 (new applicants from the USA) / 30 January 2009 (for applicantions from current Cambridge students or from countries other than the USA).

In addition, all candidates should complete a Leslie Wilson Research Scholarship application form which can be found at: http://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate/scholarships-wilson.html or obtained from the Tutor for Graduate Admissions, Magdalene College, Cambridge, CB3 0AG. Applications (FIVE COPIES) should be returned in hard copy to the Tutor for Graduate Admissions by 1 May 2009; late applications will not be considered.

ROOSEVELT SCHOLARSHIP

The College invites applications for Roosevelt Scholarships from well-qualified British and Canadian candidates who will be studying at the University of Cambridge for the M.Phil. Degree in matters relevant to Anglo-American relations. Successful candidates will have satisfied the provisional requirements of the Board of Graduate Studies of the University of Cambridge and have been accepted for registration on one of its postgraduate programmes, most probably at the Centre of International Studies.

The Scholarship is tenable for one year from 1 October 2009. Candidates must have graduated at a university before 1 October 2009. Consideration will normally be restricted to those who have a record of academic excellence consistent with the proposed field of study and who can demonstrate the potential to make a significant contribution to the broader life of Magdalene College, as well as to the wider interests of the Atlantic Studies Programme at the University of Cambridge.

In determining the value of the Scholarships in individual cases, the College will take into account candidates' income from all sources. A maximum individual award of no more than £9,747 (UK scholars) to £10,072 (Canadian scholars, to include 'settling in' payment) will be made to a Scholar in 2009. It follows, therefore, that the funding to meet the costs of University and College Fees will have already been met by the applicant.

Rented accommodation in or near College will be made available to an unmarried Scholar. A married Scholar will be offered rented accommodation near to the College.

Candidates liable to pay University fees at the overseas rate will be expected to apply for Overseas Student Bursaries awarded by the University of Cambridge and organised by the Board of Graduate Studies and The Cambridge Trusts. GRADSAF application forms should reach the Board as soon as possible and no later than 30 January 2009 (or course deadline, whichever is earlier).

All candidates should complete a Roosevelt Scholarship application form which can be found at: http://www.magd.cam.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate/scholarships-roosevelt.html or obtained from the Tutor for Graduate Admissions, Magdalene College, Cambridge, CB3 0AG. Applications (SIX COPIES) should be returned in hard copy to the Tutor for Graduate Admissions by 1 June 2009.
