Christopher Welch Scholarship in Biological Sciences

Applications are invited for a scholarship for postgraduate research in Biology, tenable at the University from the beginning of Michaelmas Term 2008. Christopher Welch scholarships, at present, offer a maintenance grant of £13.5K but this will be kept under review. They include payment of fees at the rate for 'Home' students. Scholarships are tenable for two years but may be extended for a third year. Under special circumstances the Christopher Welch Board of Management will consider extending the duration of an individual award for an extra 6 months above and beyond this period.

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 Director of Graduate Studies in the department in which they are hoping to work by Friday, 11 January 2008.

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

(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; Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics; the Dunn School of Pathology; Plant Sciences; Pharmacology or Zoology, or in one of the Departments or Sub-departments of the Faculty of Clinical Medicine.)

Applications received after 11 January 2008 cannot be considered for the Christopher Welch Scholarship.

The Christopher Welch Board has agreed to be responsible for the selection for Newton Abraham Studentships, one in Biological Sciences and one in Medical Sciences, if they are made available in 2008. Details of these will be sent to all those requesting details of the Christopher Welch Scholarships, and all applicants for the Christopher Welch award will also be considered for a Newton Abraham award.

No person may be awarded a scholarship a second time.

Application forms and further particulars are available from Mrs Judith Brown, MPLS Divisional Office, 9 Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PD or
