Scholarships and Prizes 2002:
CHRISTOPHER WELCH SCHOLARSHIPS IN BIOLOGY
Applications are invited for scholarships for postgraduate research in biology, tenable
at the University from
beginning of Michaelmas Term 2003. The scholarships are at present of the same value as
those offered by MRC
plus £1,000. They will be tenable for two years but may be extended for a third year.
The Board of
Management has the power to suspend a scholarship held by a medical student for a period
of not more than three
years, or in special cases four years, in order to enable the holder to devote himself/herself
to clinical training
without forfeiting his/her scholarship.
Candidates wishing to apply for the awards must normally have been accepted for
admission for postgraduate
study in one of the following departments: Biochemistry, Experimental Psychology, Human
Anatomy, the Dunn
School of Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Plant Sciences, Zoology, or by one of the
departments. No person may be awarded a scholarship a second time.
Each of the departments named above can submit up to two candidates for
consideration by the Board of
Management; the Regius Professor of Medicine can submit two candidates on behalf of the
Departments. Application forms must be countersigned by the head of department and
submitted by the department.
Details of closing dates for receipt of applications will be advertised at the end of
Michaelmas Term 2002.
Application forms are available from Mrs Judith Brown, Life and Environmental Sciences
Divisional Office, 2 South
Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB.
