EVAN LEWIS-THOMAS LAW BURSARIES AND STUDENTSHIPS

The Council of Sidney Sussex College offers annually, for men and women of any nationality, a number of Evan Lewis Thomas Law Bursaries and Studentships for research or advanced courses in Law or cognate subjects in the University of Cambridge. If candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, elections will next be made in May 2009. Under the terms of the will of the late Judge Evan Lewis Thomas, candidates must have shown proficiency in Law and Jurisprudence, normally by obtaining a university degree in Law by August 2009, and they must be or become candidates for the Ph.D. Degree, the Diploma in Legal Studies, the Diploma in International Law, the M.Phil. Degree (one-year course) in Criminology, or the LL.M. Degree. Only candidates for the Ph.D. Degree may apply for Evan Lewis Thomas Studentships offered by the College. Candidates for the Ph.D. Degree may also apply for other studentships offered by the College for which they are eligible.

The Evan Lewis Thomas Law Bursaries and Studentships, which are subject to reviews of diligence and progress, are tenable for one year in the first instance but may be renewed annually, up to a maximum of three years. Their value will depend on the candidate's needs in the light of support from other sources and on the availability of income from the Evan Lewis Thomas Fund. All holders of Evan Lewis-Thomas awards will receive at least £1,000 a year, but Studentships of larger amounts, up to full support of fees (at the 'Home' rate) and maintenance, may be awarded.

Election to a Studentship may be made conditional upon satisfactory results in degree examinations and is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted by the Board of Graduate Studies if he/she is a candidate for the Ph.D. Degree, the M.Phil.
