Scholarships & Prizes

The College awards students with Scholarships and Prizes for outstanding academic achievements and impressive contributions to the broader life of the College. Both come with monetary rewards, and students receiving Scholarships become Scholars.

This is made possible through the generosity of alumni and other donors.

Undergraduates

Undergraduates who achieve a First Class in University examinations (or equivalent in unclassed examinations) are awarded both a Scholarship and a Prize. Each Scholarship carries a value of £150 (except in the case of College Senior Scholarships; value £300).  

Prizes are worth a further £150 (except the Mary Lucking Prize; value £200), so that the reward for a First Class Tripos Result is generally £300.

Scholarships are held for the academic year following the award.  Scholars are invited to attend the Commemoration Dinner in April, and are also given priority in the room ballot held during Lent Term.

Graduates

Graduate Studentships and Scholarships are awarded on application.

College Senior Scholarships, worth £300, are awarded annually to our  highest performing PhD research students.

Other Prizes

At the end of the academic year, the Tutorial Committee identifies undergraduates or graduates meeting the criteria and awards other prizes accordingly. All awards carry a value of £100 unless otherwise stated.

List of Awards

The List of Scholars names is published each year in the Fitzwilliam Journal and the Cambridge University Reporter (until 2012).
