    Abstract

    ON the recommendation of the Agricultural Research Council, the following awards of agricultural research scholarships, studentships for research in animal health and veterinary scholarships have been made by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Department of Agriculture for Scotland: Dr. R. E. Taylor (King's College, Newcastle-upon-Tyne) a three-year research scholarship in plant pathology, the first year to be spent at Cambridge ; I. F. Storey (Victoria University, Manchester, and the Imperial College of Science and Technology) a one-year research scholarship in plant pathology at the Imperial College ; D. C. Thomas (Imperial College of Science and Technology) a two-year research scholarship in entomology, the first year to be spent at Cambridge ; G. W. Cooke (University College, Nottingham) a three-year research scholarship in soil chemistry, the first year to be spent at the Rothamsted Experimental Station ; M. R. F. Ashworth (Oriel College, Oxford) a one-year research scholarship in soil chemistry at the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research ; D. J. Finney (Clare College, Cambridge) a two-year research scholarship in agricultural statistics, the first year to be spent at University College, London ; A. N. Worden (Royal Veterinary College, Camden Town) a three-year studentship in animal health, the first period to be spent at the Lister Institute ; J. A. Campbell (Downing College, Cambridge) a four-year veterinary scholarship at the Royal Veterinary College, Camden Town ; J. L. McGirr (University of Glasgow) a four-year veterinary scholarship at the Royal Veterinary College, Camden Town. The object of these research scholarships and studentships is to train research workers in agricultural science and the science of animal health, and, in the case of the veterinary scholarships, to enable graduates with honours in science to obtain a veterinary professional qualification, with the view of undertaking research in animal health. This year for the first time two veterinary scholarships have been awarded.
