Scholarships and Prizes 2008:
Goodger Scholarship 2009
If suitable candidates present themselves, an election will be made in Trinity Term 2009 to a Henry Goodger Scholarship.
Goodger Scholarships are awarded to assist research into the causes and prevention of disease in its early stages. They are open to all members of the University. (A member is someone who has matriculated, whether current or not) Students who will matriculate in the Michaelmas Term following the selection procedure are not eligible, only those who have already matriculated. The scholarships are tenable for one or two years and the level of the award will be fixed (between certain limits) at the discretion of the Board of Management: it is normally set at the level of an MRC Studentship stipend (currently £12,940 per annum).
The Board of Management may also contribute towards any special expenses incurred by scholars in connection with their research, including University and College fees and dues incurred by a scholar reading for a research degree. The Board has made a regulation that holders of the scholarship shall be required to work primarily in Oxford. Scholarships shall be tenable with other posts subject to the approval of the Board. Candidates are reminded that this is a scholarship and priority will be given to those candidates demonstrating excellence in previous research activities.
Candidates must submit to the Board a statement of their qualifications and of the course of research which they propose to pursue, together with the names of two referees. There is no application form. Applications, clearly marked 'Henry Goodger Scholarship', should be sent to the Secretary of the Medical Sciences Board, Medical Sciences Office, Level 3 John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, OX3 9DU, not later than Friday, 1st May 2009.
