John Stewart of Rannoch Scholarships in Hebrew: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2006, pp. 706 and 873

Notice is hereby given that if there are candidates of sufficient merit, two John Stewart of Rannoch Scholarships in Hebrew, each tenable for three years, will be offered for competition to students resident in the University. The examination will consist of three papers.

The annual value of each Scholarship is at present £200. A Scholar is entitled to receive, at the end of the Easter Term in which he or she is elected, one year's emolument of the Scholarship. The remainder will be paid in equal termly payments, but there will be no payment at the end of a term unless the Scholar has kept the term or has pursued a course of study or research approved by the Managers. The Managers may renew the tenure for a fourth year, but for no longer.

Any member of the University may be a candidate provided that at the time of the examination not more than nine complete terms will have passed after his or her first term of residence.

The names of candidates must be sent to the Registrary (addressed to the Awards Clerk), The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TN so as to reach him not later than 19 January 2007.

If two or more candidates show equal proficiency, preference will be given to natives of the counties of Wiltshire, Somerset, and Gloucester, including the city and county of Bristol. A student who wishes to claim such preference must submit a birth certificate when his or her name is sent to the Registrary.

The examination in Hebrew will begin on the first day of Full Easter Term. The times and places of the examinations will be announced later.

Applications are also invited from graduate students registered in the University working in the field of Hebrew Studies, for grants for travel and other costs associated with their research. Application forms are available from the Faculty Administrator at the address given above, and applications will be considered twice a year: annual application deadlines are 31 October and 31 May. Applicants are advised that individual awards are unlikely to exceed £400.
