CHRISTOPHER WELCH SCHOLARSHIP IN BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES 2005

Applications are invited for a scholarship for postgraduate research in Biology, tenable at the University from the beginning of Michaelmas Term 2005.

Christopher Welch scholarships, at present, offer a maintenance grant of £13,500, but this will be kept under review. They include payment of fees at the rate for `Home' students. They are 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 must submit their applications for the Christopher Welch Scholarship to the departments in which they are hoping to work by Friday, 14 January 2005. Separate applications for admission to study in the University must be submitted to the University's Graduate Admissions Office by the same date. The University's Graduate Studies Prospectus and details of how to apply are available at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/gsp/.

Candidates for a Christopher Welch Scholarship must have applied to the University for admission for postgraduate study, normally in one of the following departments: Biochemistry, Experimental Psychology, Human Anatomy and Genetics, the Dunn School of Pathology, Plant Sciences, Pharmacology, Physiology, or Zoology (or in one of the Departments of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine).

Applications received after 14 January cannot be considered for the Christopher Welch Scholarship. No person may be awarded a scholarship a second time.

Application forms and further particulars are available from Mrs Judith Brown, Life and Environmental Sciences Divisional Office, 9 Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PD (e-mail: judith.brown@admin.ox.ac.uk).

NEWTON–ABRAHAM STUDENTSHIPS IN BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES AND MEDICAL SCIENCES 2005

Applications are invited for two awards for postgraduate study, one in Biological Sciences and one in Medical Sciences, tenable at the University from the beginning of Michaelmas Term 2005.

Studentships are tenable for three years and are to be held in association with Lincoln College. The Christopher Welch Board is responsible for the selection for the Newton–Abraham Studentship in Biological Sciences and the Newton–Abraham Studentship in Medical Sciences. The studentships will provide payment of fees (at home or overseas student rates) and a maintenance grant. The grant for 2004–5 is £10,500.

The studentships will also provide a grant of about £1,400 per studentship per annum in respect of incidental costs to the department in which each studentship is held, in line with provision made by the research councils for this purpose. Incidental costs include fieldwork, attendance at conferences, skills training, industrial placements, and any other costs covered by research council payments for research support.

Candidates wishing to apply must submit their applications for the studentships to the departments in which they are hoping to work by Friday, 14 January 2005.
