Scholarship for Study at St. John’s College, Cambridge

st_johns_collegeHere is a scholarship opportunity from the Council of Independent College. The Davies-Jackson Scholarship presents a unique opportunity for students with exceptional academic records, who are among the first generation in their families to graduate college, to participate in a course of study at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge. Scholars are admitted as affiliated students and have the opportunity to take the more advanced parts of a Cambridge degree course and qualify for a Cambridge BA in two years instead of the usual three. Following the completion of their first year of study some Scholars have opted into a one year M. Phil program at the discretion of the Senior Tutor at St. John’s.

Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich educational environment of St. John’s, which was founded in the 16th century, by reading in one of the following subjects: ClassicsEconomicsEducationEnglishGeographyHistoryHistory of ArtHuman, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS includes politics, internatinoal relations, sociology, anthropology, and archaeology)Modern and Medieval LanguagesMusicPhilosophy; or Psychological and Behavioural Sciences.

Are You Working On A Research Project?

Here is an opportunity to present your research. The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences of Purdue University Calumet just announced the 24th Annual Clement S. Stacy Memorial Undergraduate Research Conference, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 15-16, 2016 in Hammond Indiana.

Their goal is to provide a forum for undergraduate Humanities and Social Sciences scholars from across the upper Midwest to present their projects and discuss the results of their research with fellow students and faculty mentors. We had two students present last year, and both reported having a good experience.

If you are interested, information about the abstract submission guidelines, deadline, and conference details can be found at the Clement S. Stacy Memorial Undergraduate Research Conference web page.
