Submission of Application

Posted by Mark

A Scholarship application should be submitted by a full time faculty member, with a named student. The student is required to obtain a first class or 2-1 (upper second class) undergraduate degree, and the Scholarship is conditional on this being obtained, including in the case where an application is made before the undergraduate degree results are available.

Submission deadline: Friday, 9th September, 2011 at 5:00PM EST.

Contact may be made with The CFK at any time prior to the deadline, by the prospective student or by the prospective faculty member. The application is to contain in one page a case for support for the scholarship, with reference to the theme areas below. In addition, a CV of the prospective student should be included, containing grades obtained (Certified Transcript), and one reference letter. The CV of the prospective faculty member, indicating research and teaching, and a cover letter of interest, should also accompany the application.


Research Area:
