Board of Management of the Pirie-Reid Fund

Pirie-Reid Scholarship

Applications are invited for a Pirie-Reid Scholarship tenable at the University of Oxford by graduates (including persons expecting to graduate in 1996) who intend in October 1996 to commence working for a degree or diploma.

Preference will be given to candidates applying from other universities, i.e. not already matriculated at Oxford, and to those domiciled or educated in Scotland. Candidates not fulfilling these criteria are unlikely to be successful.

The scholarship, which is to to be awarded to a person wishing to begin a course of study at Oxford who would otherwise be prevented by lack of funds will cover university and college fees and provide a grant for maintenance, subject to assessment of other sources of income (maintenance grants for 1995–6 are £1,885 for undergraduates and £5,260 for postgraduates). It will be renewable from year to year, subject to satisfactory progress and continuance of approved full-time study.

Candidates for the Pirie-Reid Scholarship are expected to have applied for admission to the University in the usual way.

Application forms may be obtained from Mrs J. Brown, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

The closing date for applications is 1 May 1996.
