CAMBRIDGE.—The electors to the Allen scholarship give notice that they are prepared to receive applications from candidates. Any graduate of the University is eligible for the scholarship provided that his age on the first day of the Lent term, 1910, does not exceed twenty-eight years. This year the scholarship is open to candidates who propose to undertake research in any branch of study which comes within the department of any of the following special boards:—medicine, mathematics, physics and chemistry, biology and geology. The scholarship is tenable for one year, during which period it will be the duty of the student to devote himself to research in Cambridge or elsewhere. The emolument of the student is 250l., or such smaller sum as the fund, after payment of all expenses, shall be capable of providing. Every, candidate must send to the Vice-Chancellor, Pembroke College Lodge, on or before February 15, his name and a definite statement of the course of research which he proposes to undertake, together with such evidence of his qualifications as he thinks proper, and with the names of not more than three referees to whom the electors may apply for information.
