OU graduates are being invited to apply for a second degree scholarship at Cambridge.
The John Crook Scholarship programme at St John's College, Cambridge, is now entering its third year, and is awarded to a graduate of a British university, who has an exceptional academic record, who is the first in his/her family to attend university, and who may not have considered coming to Cambridge or had the opportunity of doing so.
Candidates will be British citizens and will normally be completing or have completed a full-time three/four year Honours Degree course, at an exceptionally high standard, at a university on the list of those eligible for the scheme (which includes the OU).
The John Crook Scholar will be admitted to St John’s College, Cambridge, to study for a second Bachelor’s Degree in the arts or humanities (excluding law or theological studies), or the Degree of Master of Advanced Studies in mathematics or science subjects. Other options may be available for an appropriately qualified candidate.
The award will be for up to two years (depending on the course), and is fully funded; with a maintenance grant at the rate of at least £10,000 per annum plus payment of approved College and University fees.
Application forms can be downloaded from the College website, or may be obtained from the John Crook Scholarship administrator, in the Tutorial Office at St John’s College, Cambridge, CB2 1TP.
Completed application forms must be received by 1 November 2012 for admission in October 2013.
