Top

THE science scholarship committee of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 has recently awarded the following senior studentships and overseas scholarships, upon the recommendations of the universities and other institutions named: SENIOR STUDENTS. Dr. H. J. Bhabha (University of Cambridge), for research in theoretical physics at Cambridge ; Dr. H. N. Rydon (Imperial College of Science and Technology), for research in organic chemistry at Oxford ; Dr. J. L. Harley (University of Oxford), for’research in mycology at Oxford ; Dr. A. H. S. Holbourn (University of Oxford), for research in experimental physics at Oxford. A fifth Studentship was given to’Dr. T. S. Westoll, who was a palaeontologist recommended by University College, London, but he has been appointed to a lectureship at Aberdeen and therefore will not take up the award. OVERSEAS SCHOLAKSHIPS. Canada: Mr. A. J. C. Wilson (Dalhousie University, Halifax), for research in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge ; Mr. D. M. Ross (Dalhousie University, Halifax), for research in experimental zoology at the University of Cambridge ; Dr. H. Rudoff (McGill University, Montreal), for research in organic chemistry at the University of Oxford ; Dr. J. L. Morrison (McGill University, Montreal), for research hi physical chemistry at the University of Cambridge ; Mr. A. G. Ward (Queen’s University, Kingston), for research in physics at the University of Cambridge. Australia: Mr. R. D. Hill (University of Melbourne), for research in physics at the University of Cambridge ; Miss K. L. Prendergast (University of Western Australia), for research in palaeontology at the University of Cambridge. New Zealand: Mr. I. Lauder (University of New Zealand), for research in physical chemistry at the University of Manchester. South Africa: Mr. F. Sebba (University of Cape Town), for research in inorganic chemistry at the Imperial College of Science and Technology. Irish Free State: Mr. D. A. Webb (Trinity College, Dublin), for research in zoology at the University of Cambridge ; India: Mr. N. S.
