Scholarships and Prizes 2002:


The Board of Management of the Abbott Fund invites applications, during Michaelmas Term, for the award of bursaries to members of the University who are:

(a) children (including orphan children) of the clergy of the Church of England;

(b) reading for (i) a first degree, or (ii) the Degree of Bachelor of Medicine or an equivalent degree, or (iii) a second Honour School, of the University; and

(c) standing in need of financial assistance to enable them to obtain the full benefit of a university education.

The deadline for the 2002–3 application round is Friday, 6 December 2002.

The bursaries may range from £200 to £1,700, depending upon financial circumstances; in 2001–2 awards were most commonly in the region of £1,000–£1,200. As demand on this small fund is high, the fund managers expect that applicants will have sought additional financial support from other sources, including the Student Loan Company and the Government Hardship Funds administered by Colleges.

Students who are eligible and interested in applying for a bursary should contact their Senior Tutor or College Chaplain for an application form. The bursaries are usually paid during Hilary Term.

[Although the board normally considers applications for the current academic year only, colleges and societies are invited to apply for bursaries to be awarded in future years, on behalf of prospective junior members who would be eligible and who are likely to be dependent upon such sources of funding].
