St John's College


St John's College Cambridge proposes to award a Luisa Aldobrandini Studentship to enable a student from one of the universities of Rome to undertake postgraduate study in the University of Cambridge commencing in October 2006. The successful applicant will be selected from those who have obtained a place at St John's College to read for the M.Phil. or Ph.D. Degrees.

To be eligible for the Studentship to be awarded from October 2006, a candidate must have obtained or obtain the Laurea from one of Universities in Rome (Università degli Studi di Roma 'La Sapienza', Università degli Studi di Roma 'Tor Vergata', Università degli Studi di Roma 'Roma III', and Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli in Roma) between 1 October 2004 and 1 October 2006.

The Studentship will be tenable for the duration of the student's course up to a maximum of three years and will comprise (a) a maintenance grant of £11,500 a year and (b) approved College and University fees. The value of any Studentship awarded will be reduced appropriately to take account of any payment from other sources.

There is no separate application form for this Studentship. Candidates should apply to the University of Cambridge through the University's Board of Graduate Studies for admission as a graduate student, specifying St John's as their first choice of College. The Graduate Application Form can be downloaded from the Board's website at http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/. Those interested in receiving a paper copy of the Graduate Application Form and the Graduate Studies Prospectus should send an e-mail to graduate-admissions@joh.cam.ac.uk, giving details of their postal address. The papers of those who are accepted by the relevant University Department will be passed on to St John's College who will then consider the candidate for a place in the College. All eligible candidates who by 1 May 2006 have been made a conditional offer by St John's College to read for the M.Phil. or Ph.D. Degrees starting in October 2006 will be considered for the Luisa Aldobrandini Studentship. The successful candidate will be notified by the end of June 2006.

In view of the delays that can occur as a result of sometimes lengthy selection processes in the University Departments it is suggested that candidates for the Luisa Aldobrandini Studentship ensure that their Graduate Application Forms reach the Board of Graduate Studies by 31 December 2005. Candidates whose forms are submitted after that date will be considered if their forms reach the College in time.


The following fully funded Scholarships are available at St John's College for the academical year 2006-07:
