Marmaduke Sheild Scholarships: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 859

The Head of the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience gives notice that all students reading NST Part II Physiology, Development & Neuroscience shall be considered candidates for the Marmaduke Sheild Scholarships in Human Anatomy unless they notify the Registrary that they do not wish to be considered not later than 31 October. The Awarders hope to be in a position to make up to four awards.

Candidates must be undergraduates of not more than three years' standing from matriculation, or Bachelors of Arts of not more than four years' standing from matriculation, who have completed the First M.B. Examination, are qualified in anatomy and in physiology to proceed to the Final M.B. Examination, and have also obtained honours in Part IB of the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Tripos with anatomy as one of their subjects.

The Awarders will take into consideration not only the candidates' performance in examinations in Anatomy, but also reports by the staff of the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience on their general ability and performance as students of Anatomy, in practical and in theoretical work.

Each Scholarship is tenable for the year beginning 1 October, unless the Awarders determine otherwise. A Scholar may be re-elected for a second year, whether he or she satisfies the rules of standing for a first election or not.

A total sum of £500 is available for these awards. The maximum emolument of any one Scholarship is at present £250 a year.

If a Scholar has not already obtained honours in Part II of the Natural Sciences Tripos, he or she must be a candidate for that examination in anatomy in the year following election to the Scholarship unless over the standing for such candidature. If a Scholar has obtained honours as aforesaid before election, or is over the standing for such candidature, he or she must undertake a course of research in human anatomy approved by the Head of the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience, and must pursue it under his supervision or that of a person appointed by the Head of the Department for this purpose from among the teaching staff of the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience.
