C.T. So Studentship

The Council of Sidney Sussex College offers, for men and women from China, Hong Kong or Taiwan, a C.T. So Studentship for research or advanced courses in any subject in the University of Cambridge. The C.T. So Studentship, which is subject to reviews of diligence and progress, is tenable for one year in the first instance but may be renewed annually, up to a maximum of three years. Its value depends on the candidate's needs in the light of support from other sources and on the availability of income from the C.T So Fund.

If there is a candidate of sufficient merit, an election will be made to a Studentship (of up to £19,000 per annum, reduced to £1,000 if full funding is obtained from another source) in May 2016.

Election to a Studentship may be made conditional upon satisfactory results in degree examinations and is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted for a graduate degree by the University of Cambridge Student Registry.

Students from other Colleges may apply for any of these awards, but if successful they would be expected to transfer their membership to Sidney Sussex College. In the competition for the Studentship, no preference will be given to candidates who nominate Sidney Sussex as their College of first or second choice on their application form.
