New Hall

DOMESTIC RESEARCH STUDENTSHIP SCHEME

The College is a member of the University's 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 at should name New Hall as their first choice on the Graduate Admission and Scholarship Application Form or on their online application (GRADSAF). Candidates also have to be nominated by their Department or Faculty. Applicants will be considered for an award in the summer preceding their October entry.

For further details of the conditions of these awards see the University's Graduate Admissions website (http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/funding/aid/drs/).

OVERSEAS BURSARIES

New Hall offers several Overseas Student Bursaries (generally of the order of £2000) 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 their first choice on the Graduate Application Form. No separate application is needed but in order to express their wish to be considered for a Bursary, candidates should fill in their details on the College's Graduate Admissions website at the same time as they submit their GRADSAF to the Board of Graduate Studies. Candidates are advised that their applications should, if at all possible, arrive at the Board of Graduate Studies in or before early December of the year preceding entrance.

BP CENTENARY AWARDS

These awards are for overseas graduate students and comprise four one-year bursaries (of £2,000) for M.Phil. or LL.M. students; six three-year bursaries of £2,000 a year for Ph.D. students (renewal after the first year is subject to satisfactory reports after the first and second years of research); and two three-year studentships of £8,000 a year also for Ph.D. 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. Each of these awards is matched by an equal grant from the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust or Cambridge Overseas Trust, thus doubling the sums available.

THE STEPHAN KÖRNER GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP

The Stephan Körner Graduate Scholarship, worth £3,500 is available for a graduate student in Philosophy, Classics or Law to assist in funding a full one-year M.Phil. and/or three-year Ph.D. course. It is only available to students who list New Hall as their first choice on the GRADSAF. No separate application is needed but in order to express their wish to be considered for a Bursary candidates should fill in their details on the College's Graduate Admissions website at the same time as they submit their GRADSAF to the Board of Graduate Studies. Applications should arrive no later than 1 April.

ENTRANCE RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS

Any graduate of New Hall with a first class honours degree who becomes registered as a graduate student will automatically be considered for these studentships. The value of each studentship, tenable for 2009-10, will be £800.

NEW HALL GRADUATE RESEARCH FUND

The College's 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.
