Robinson College


The College expects to award one Lewis Scholarship to a graduate student registering for a Ph.D. degree in the humanities. The scholarship is tenable for up to three years, subject to satisfactory academic progress; it may be held in conjunction with other awards. The scholarship covers University and College fees at the Home/EU level and provides the student with a maintenance allowance at an ESRC level (currently £12,600).

The scholarship is open to all applicants who name Robinson College as their College of first choice on the Board of Graduate Studies Application Form for Admissions as a Graduate student, or are prepared to change College if offered the scholarship. The scholarship is conditional on the candidate being offered a place at the University.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and details of their intended programme of research (including no more than one A4 page describing their proposed research project), together with details of other grant applications, to the Graduate Admissions Tutor, Robinson College, Cambridge, CB3 9AN, no later than 1 May 2009 for entry on 1 October 2009. Applicants will be informed of decisions reached by the selectors by 31 May 2009.

Applicants should also arrange for two confidential references to be sent directly to the College by the same closing date. References should include details of candidates' likely degree result if not yet obtained.


Up to three Yates-Unilever Scholarships, tenable for one year and renewable, are offered annually to Graduate Students from overseas countries who register for a Ph.D. Degree in a science subject at the College. Applications are usually made in the first year of study. In any one year the award is unlikely to exceed £300 to any student.


Further information on scholarship funding may be obtained from the College website (http://www.robinson.cam.ac.uk/admissions/graduates.php) or by contacting the Graduate Admissions Tutor, Robinson College, Cambridge, CB3 9AN.
