Undergraduate scholarships and 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. All of this is possible due to the generosity of alumni and other donors.

Scholarships and prizes for academic achievement

Undergraduates who achieve a First Class in University examinations (or equivalent in unclassed examinations) are awarded both a Scholarship and a Prize.

Scholarships are for one year and will be honorary if not continuing to study at Fitzwilliam.  If returning for Postgraduate studies at Fitzwilliam College studying for a Master’s Degree the value of the 1912 Senior Scholarship will be £175; and if studying for a Ph.D., it will instead be a College Senior Scholarship of £350.

Prizes are worth a further £175 (except the Mary Lucking Prize; value £350), so that the reward for a First Class Tripos Result is generally £350.

Scholarships are held for the academic year following the award. Scholars are also invited to attend the Commemoration Dinner in April.

Other prizes

At the end of the academic year, the Tutorial Committee identifies undergraduates or graduates (students) meeting the criteria and awards other prizes accordingly. All awards carry a value of £110 unless otherwise stated.
