Rebecca Flower Squire Fund and Scholarships: Notices

Statutes and Ordinances, 2008, pp. 716 and 892

The Managers of the Rebecca Flower Squire Fund give notice that they are prepared to make grants from the Fund on grounds of financial hardship to resident members of the University engaged in the study of law who declare their intention of practicing or teaching law. An applicant must be a British citizen or a citizen of a country of the Commonwealth. The value of the grant will be determined by the Managers in each particular case.

Applications forms may be obtained from the Secretary of the Faculty Board of Law, 10 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DZ. Applicants should send their applications (which may be submitted at any time) through their Tutor.

The Managers of the Rebecca Flower Squire Fund also give notice that there will be an election to one or more Squire Scholarships in Law in November 2008. The Scholarships will be awarded for outstanding merit or promise in examinations. The tenure of the Scholarships will be from 1 October 2009 and will be subject to the Scholar becoming or continuing to be a resident member of the University.

A candidate must be a British citizen or a citizen of a country of the Commonwealth. Candidates are required to read for an examination in law and to declare their intention of practicing or teaching law. Preferences are given to certain of the kin of the late Rebecca Flower Squire, and to candidates born in the Parish of St Mary Newington, London.

The annual value of each Scholarship will be determined by the Managers of the Fund for each candidate after taking into account any other financial resources that may be available to the Scholar. Scholarships will be awarded for one year in the first instance, but may be renewed annually for a further two years (or in exceptional cases for a longer period), if the Electors are satisfied that the Scholar's conduct, diligence, academic results, and financial circumstances justify the re-election; at any re-election the Electors may vary the emolument of the Scholar.

Forms of application can be obtained from the Secretary of the Faculty Board of Law, Faculty of Law, 10 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DZ, and must be returned to the Secretary by every candidate on or before the division of the Michaelmas Term 2009. The application of a candidate resident in the University must be submitted through his or her Tutor. Candidates should specify the public examinations which they have passed, and the awards, if any, that they hold. Candidates may be required to attend for interview.
