Bradlow Scholarships

Please note that (with the occasional exception for truly outstanding applicants) a scholar will only be selected every second year.

There will be a Competition for the academic year 2018/19:-

Those eligible for consideration for funding from the Bradlow Foundation are South African nationals who

(a)  have applied to the University of Cambridge to read for a PhD degree from the 
      academic year 2018/19;

(b)  have listed St. John’s College as their first choice college on the Graduate Application 
       Form in the Applicant Portal (provided by the University's Graduate Admissions Office at the Board of Graduate Studies);

(c)  have received a conditional offer of a graduate place from St John’s College by 1 March 2018;

(d)  are still under 30 years of age on that date.

Please note that the Graduate Admissions Office at the Board of Graduate Studies, St John’s College and the Bradlow Foundation do not provide a separate form of application for the Competition.

Applicants should not apply direct to the Foundation.  St John’s College will (after 1 March 2018) forward the papers of suitable applicants to the Foundation. The Bradlow Foundation will then contact applicants direct if they wish to consider them in the Scholarship Competition.
