Pembroke College

The College offers general studentships, and studentships for particular subjects and for applicants from particular regions, as follows. They are all entrance awards.

COLLEGE RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS

Each year the College awards a variety of studentships up to the value of three fully funded studentships. These include the Guggenheim, Root, and Wilkinson Studentships. A fully funded studentship, where awarded, would pay a student's College and University fees and a maintenance allowance of £9,880 a year. 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 PEMBROKE GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN ARABIC AND ISLAMIC STUDIES (INCLUDING PERSIAN)

THE ZIEGLER GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN LAW

THE BETHUNE-BAKER GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN THEOLOGY

The College hopes to award these graduate studentships in Arabic and Islamic studies, Law, and Theology to candidates who intend to register for the Ph.D. Degree at the University of Cambridge. The studentships will have a value sufficient to pay College and University fees at the Home/EU rate for three years. The Arabic and Islamic Studentship is awarded owing to the generosity of HM the Sultan of Oman and of Professor E. G. Browne.

THE THORNTON GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN HISTORY

THE NAHUM GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN PHYSICS

THE BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB GRADUATE STUDENTSHIP IN THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES

The College hopes to award these graduate studentships in History and Physics to candidates who intend to register for the Ph.D. Degree at the University of Cambridge. The studentships 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 (£3,300 in 2008-09), may be made to individual applicants, depending on need and the availability of funds.

THE LANDER STUDENTSHIP IN THE HISTORY OF ART

The College is very pleased to be able to offer two studentships for outstanding art historians, supported by the estate of Professor J. R. Lander. One is for the Ph.D. and one is for the M.Phil. In order to be eligible for the Ph.D. studentship, candidates must be applying to study for a Ph.D. Degree in the History of Art at the University of Cambridge, with Pembroke as first-choice College. The studentship will, if necessary, pay University and College fees, at the home rate, plus a maintenance allowance of £9,880 a year, for a maximum of three years. Overseas candidates must find the difference between home and overseas fee rates by other means. In order to be eligible for the M.Phil. studentship, candidates must be applying to study for the M.Phil. degree in the History of Art at the University of Cambridge, with Pembroke as first-choice College. The studentship has a value sufficient to pay College fees (£2,127 in 2008-09) plus a maintenance sum of £7,800. Candidates must find the University composition fee (in 2008-09, £3,300 for home and EU students, £9,237 for overseas students) by other means.

M.PHIL. STUDENTSHIP FOR APPLICANTS FROM THE LEAST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES

The College is offering this one-year studentship to enable the winner to study for an M.Phil. degree, or equivalent, at the University of Cambridge. It will, if necessary, pay University fees at least at the standard rate for Home/EU students (£3,300 in 2008-09) plus College fees and a maintenance figure of £9,880. There is no restriction on subject, but candidates should be aware that the studentship will normally not cover the cost of fees at the overseas rate or of differential fees for Home/EU students on some courses (e.g. Economics). Eligibility is confined to nationals of the fifty 'Least Developed Countries' as defined by the United Nations (http://www.un.org/special-rep/ohrlls/ldc/list.htm), most of which are in Africa or South-East Asia. Candidates must also apply concurrently for funding from the Cambridge European, Commonwealth or Overseas Trusts, as appropriate. The award is for one year only and is not renewable.

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 AWARDS

All applicants for any of these awards must apply in the first instance to the Board of Graduate Studies for their University place (forms available from the Secretary, Board of Graduate Studies, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ or on-line). Candidates should indicate on the BGS form that they are applying for a Pembroke College award. In making awards preference will be given to those who nominate Pembroke as their College of first choice.

Applicants should also complete a Pembroke Studentship form which can be obtained from the Graduate Secretary, Pembroke College, Cambridge, CB2 1RF (or email tut@pem.cam.ac.uk). 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 academical year. Preference will be given to candidates who apply to the University by 31 January 2009.

All candidates are expected to apply for Research Council awards, and for the University's Domestic Research Studentships, 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.
