MICHAEL AND LOUISA VON CLEMM FOUNDATION, INC., CORPUS CHRISTI COLLEGE, AND HARVARD UNIVERSITY

Michael von Clemm Fellowship 2006–7

Applications are invited for a Michael von Clemm Fellowship for study at Harvard University during the academic year 2006–7. The fellowship is in memory of Michael von Clemm (1935–97), who was a graduate of Harvard and a graduate student (and subsequently Honorary Fellow) of Corpus Christi College. It is open to undergraduates at the University of Oxford who will be entering their final year in October 2005 and also to those who will complete their degree in June 2005. It is intended to attract applicants of very high academic calibre and who have the personal qualities likely to conduce to success in a non-academic career. The holder will also be perceived (however informally) as an 'ambassadorial' representative of Oxford at Harvard, and should be content with and capable of that role.

The successful applicant will spend a year at the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences as a Special Student following a course of study or research of his or her choice (subject to the availability of tuition or supervision at Harvard); he/she must apply to and be registered at that School and no other. The fellowship is not intended for those wishing to study vocational subjects, such as Business Administration or Law. Potential applicants are advised to look at the School Web site (www.gsas.harvard.edu), and should if possible list in their application the specific courses there which they hope to take.

The fellowship will meet the costs of all tuition at Harvard as well as travel between Boston and the UK and will provide an allowance sufficient to cover the costs of living at Harvard.

Those wishing to be considered should write to the College Secretary, Corpus Christi College, Oxford OX1 4JF, or e-mail college.office@ccc.ox.ac.uk asking for further particulars and an application form, together with a copy of the information for referees. It is the responsibility of applicants to ask three referees to write directly to the same address. Completed application forms and references must reach the College Secretary not later than 28 October. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

It is expected that interviews will be held towards the end of November.
