Holland Rose Studentship: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2008, pp. 716 and 867

Under the regulations governing the Fund the Electors are empowered to:

(i) provide one or two studentships;
(ii) provide grants for the purpose of encouraging the study of the recent history of the British Empire since 1815 and of the Commonwealth.

The Managers give notice that they wish to invite applications for these awards.

Eligibility
Studentships

Studentships are open to any citizen of a Commonwealth country, or of a country which was in membership of the British Empire or Commonwealth in 1932, who has graduated in any university with high honours in history, or in some other subject held by the Electors to be relevant to the subject of proposed study.

A candidate must either not have received the first degree of any university earlier than 1 October 2005 or shall have been registered as a Graduate Student in the University for not more than nine terms by 1 May 2009.

Preference will be given to a student who is seeking to prepare for a career in the service of the Commonwealth or of any Commonwealth country.

Grants

Graduate Students in the University and who are not elected to a Studentship may apply for small grants to assist in the study of subjects connected with the general history or constitutional, social, or cultural development of the British Empire since 1815, of the Commonwealth, or of the present problems of the Commonwealth.

Application procedures
Studentships

Candidates must submit evidence of their competence for historical or other relevant studies: and if elected, must undertake during tenure of a Studentship continuous and full time study of some subject, approved by the Electors, connected with the general history or constitutional, social, or cultural development of the British Empire since 1815, of the Commonwealth, or of the present problems of the Commonwealth.

Application forms for Studentships can be downloaded from the Faculty's website: http://www.hist.cam.ac.uk/pgadmissions/funding/trustfunds.html, or requested from the Accounts Office, Faculty of History, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9EF. The closing date for the receipt of applications is 1 May 2009. Late applications will not be considered. Candidates must also arrange for two confidential references to be sent to reach the Secretary by 1 May 2009.

Grants

Application forms for grants can be downloaded from the Faculty's website: http://www.hist.cam.ac.uk/pgadmissions/funding/trustfunds.html, or requested from the Accounts Office, Faculty of History, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9EF. All applications should include details of the research project for which support is sought and of the expenses incurred, together with a statement of any other source of assistance to which application has been made and also the names and addresses of two referees.

Applications for grants should be submitted to the Accounts Office by 1 May 2009. Applicants should invite their referees to write to the Accounts Office in support of their application by the same date.

Values of awards
Studentships

The value of the Studentship will be determined by the Electors, after taking into consideration the amount of any other emoluments received by the applicant. The maximum value will not exceed the value of an AHRC postgraduate maintenance award. Awards may be made at considerably lower levels.

A Studentship will be tenable for one academical year, but a student in the first year of tenure may compete for re-election for a second year. In making his gift of the Studentship the donor expressed the hope that, if eligible, the candidate elected might become a member of Christ's College, if not already a member, and if approved by the College.

Grants

The value of grants awarded are at the discretion of the Managers of the Fund and will be up to, but not exceeding, £1,000.
