Funding for Internal Graduate Applicants

This information applies to:
(i)    Current Undergraduate Students of the College
(ii)    Members of the College reading for
            (a)  the Certificate of Advanced Study
            (b)  the LLM 
(iii)    Current MPhil Students of St. John's
(iv)    Former MPhil Students of St. John's returning for a PhD

College Scholarships and Supplementary Emoluments

Current undergraduates of St John's and those members of the College currently reading for the Certificate of Advanced Study or the LLM, and current MPhil Students of St. John’s will automatically be awarded College Scholarships if they reach the required standard in their Tripos or MASt examinations or their MPhil. All College Scholars are awarded an annual prize of £500 or £400.

College Graduate Funding

Those entitled to such Scholarships (including former MPhil Students of St. John’s returning for a PhD) who intend to continue with graduate work at St John’s will automatically be considered for funding associated with their Scholarships (Supplementary Emoluments) at meetings in July and September/October. 

This funding is at a level equivalent to that for Benefactors’ Scholarships. College Scholars whose fields of study fall within those mentioned for the named Scholarships above may be given awards from the Craik, J.C.Hall, Paskin or Pelling funds as appropriate.

Tenure:
 For those returning to graduate work at St John’s the Scholarship will continue for the normal minimum duration of the course, subject to satisfactory academic progress. (e.g. for those embarking on an M Phil with the intention of continuing for the PhD, the Scholarship will initially last for one year but will be renewed for a further three years if the distinguished performance standard is achieved in the M Phil.)  Supplementary Emoluments will normally continue until the end of the qualifying Scholarship

How to apply: Current undergraduates of St John's and those members of the College currently reading for the Master of Advanced Study, the LLM or the M.Phil. degree need not fill in a separate application form. 

No decisions about Scholarships or associated funding can be taken until the applicant's examination results have been announced

Applicants will be required also to apply for all other research awards for which they are eligible.  The value of any Scholarship awarded will be reduced appropriately to take account of payments from other sources.  Election will be conditional upon admission by the Board of Graduate Studies.
