The Wood-Whistler Medal and Scholarship is awarded annually to a first year graduate student in Newnham College who is following a course in:
- Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
Modern and Medieval Languages
- Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic
The Scholarship is worth £3,000 and is awarded to the applicant who submits the best written work to the panel of judges.
Applicants should submit work not exceeding 7,500 words. This could be a dissertation, or two essays that students consider to be their best work and which you feel best illustrates your potential. There is no need to write anything new as a dissertation or essay already submitted would be perfectly acceptable.
If you would like to be considered for the Medal and Scholarship please supply 3 copies of your work to the Tutorial Office, by no later than 12 noon on 9th February 2018.
Please send, too, a covering letter with your CV attached, and a clear statement of the status of your chosen work (e.g. undergraduate dissertation, or M.Phil. dissertation).
We should point out that this is a reward for an outstanding young scholar. Were you to win it, it would not affect any other funding.
