Adam Glinsman Award
The Adam Glinsman Award offers support to students of Sidney Sussex College from emerging economies. The award will be used to fund either
- The fees or maintenance of a PhD student with a research project (in technology, engineering, finance or applied science) that has the potential to make a significant contribution to life in emerging economies or
- The fees or maintenance of a student enrolled in a Master’s programme in technology, engineering, applied science or finance that relates directly to improving conditions in developing countries or
- The research expenses of a PhD student who has a financial need for funding to undertake a specific programme of study or research that has the potential to make a significant contribution to life in emerging economies.
Awards are expected to be made up to £5,000 in each instance and the award may be renewable for up to 3 years depending on the length of the course of study.
Students must be from an emerging economy and enrolled on a course that fits the criterion listed above. Students applying for fees should either be members or applicants of Sidney Sussex College, or be willing to transfer membership should the award be offered. Existing Ph.D. students applying for research expenses would normally be expected to be existing members of the college.
