The College intends to award one Shuttleworth Studentship per year. This award is for three years subject to satisfactory progress in the first year of study. Candidates for a PhD in Zoology, Physiology, or any subject funded by the BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes are eligible to apply.
The Shuttleworth Studentship is for three years subject to satisfactory progress in the first year. The Studentship usually covers University fees and a maintenance allowance. The final value of the Studentship is determined after consideration of the successful candidate's income from other sources. Students should also apply to the BBSRC Doctoral Training Doctoral Training Programmes and for any other studentships or other research awards for which they may be eligible.
Candidates are expected to be of outstanding academic ability. Tenure of the Shuttleworth Studentship is conditional upon the elected student being accepted for admission to the University by the Postgraduate Admissions Office (PAO). Preference is given to those who put Caius as their first-choice college. The award of a studentship may be conditional upon the candidate's obtaining satisfactory results in their final degree examinations.
