Scandinavian Studies Fund and Studentship: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 853

The Managers of the Scandinavian Studies Fund give notice that applications for the Scandinavian Studentship and for grants from the Scandinavian Studies Fund must be submitted through the candidate's Tutor to the Registrary (addressed to the awards clerk), The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TN, so as to reach him not later than 1 June 2007.

The Scandinavian Studentship for advanced study or research in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, or Iceland is open to members of the University who at the date of election have passed some final examination for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, provided that at the same date not more than twenty-four terms have elapsed since the end of their first term of residence. The Studentship is tenable for one year; but a Student is eligible for re-election on not more than two occasions.

Applications for the Studentship should be accompanied by a statement of the course of advanced study or research which the candidate proposes to undertake if elected. The course proposed must involve residence in Scandinavia for not less than eight months.

The Student will receive a stipend of £50, which will be paid not later than the thirtieth day following the election, and such additional stipend, subject to a maximum approved from time to time by the Council, as may be determined by the Managers after taking account of any other financial resources that may be available to the Student.

Any member of the University may apply for a grant from the Scandinavian Studies Fund for the furtherance of study connected with Scandinavian countries.

Applications for the Studentship or for a grant should be made on special forms, copies of which are available from the Secretary, Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic, 9 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DP or may be down-loaded from the Department website: N.B. Applications for grants to support joint projects should be made by the senior member supervising the project on behalf of the individuals taking part.
