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. 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 £300), 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.
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 £100 unless otherwise stated.
