Scholarships Guide for Commonwealth Postgraduate Students, 1980-82.
Association of Commonwealth Universities, London (England).
This handbook contains summarized information about scholarships, grants, studentships, demonstratorships and assistantships, and other forms of financial assistance open to graduates of universities in one British Commonwealth country who wish to undertake postgraduate study or reseach at a university in another Commonwealth country. It includes both awards specifically intended for Commonwealth graduates and awards for which they may apply among other candidates. The entries have been arranged in sections according to country or countries of tenure. The first section contains awards tenable in more than two countries. This is followed by sections for the various countries in alphabetical order, listing awards tenable only in the country concerned, or in that country and one other, with appropriate cross-references. Within each section, awards unrestricted as to field of study or offered in a wide range of subjects are shown first, followed by other awards grouped under the broad headings "arts,""social studies,""science and technology," and "medical sciences." Each entry is preceded by a reference number and begins with the name of the administering agency, followed by the title of the award. Other descriptive information includes subject, eligibility, tenure, and closing date. Appendix One contains a list of sources from which graduates of Commonwealth universities may obtain information about awards for postgraduate study tenable at universities in the country in which they graduated. (The appendix also includes details of awards open only to graduates of UK universities and tenable only in the United Kingdom.) Appendix Two gives details of scholarships and fellowships that are tenable at certain important non-University institutions. (SW)
