Nature volume 158, pages 701702 (16 November 1946) | Download Citation



A FOURTH edition (June 1946) of the List of Whole-Time wards for Scientific Research, other than Prorassorships, offered by Public and Private Bod M flpreat Britain and Northern Ireland, preeu primarily for the use of the Commissioners for tmr Exhibition of 1851, follows the same lines as its predecessors, of which the last was issued in November 1937 (London: Roy. Comm. Exhib. 1851. 1s.). It does not include awards of less than £150 a year, or scholarships for special branches of medicine or veterinary science. It also omits awards offered by-universities and scientific societies exclusively for the benefits of their own members, and awards for which British subjects are not eligible. An endeavour has been made to bring the information fully up to date, but the post-war policy of some of the bodies responsible for the administration of awards has not been finally settled. Some new awards, founded by recent benefactions, may also have been Omitted through lack of information. The awards are arranged in three classes according to whether they are open awards offered (1) by private and public bodies other than universities or colleges, (2) by universities and colleges, and (3) awards restricted to candidates from particular localities or institutions. There is a subject index and a general index.
