ON the recommendation of the Colonial Medical Research Committee, the Secretary of State for the Colonies has instituted ten research studentships for graduates in medicine and cognate sciences, who desire by this means to prepare themselves for research work in tropical medicine and related subjects. The Studentships will carry an allowance at the rate of £260 per annum, and will normally be for a period of two years. They will be awarded on the advice of the Colonial Medical Research Committee, and will be tenable at any university or other appropriate institution as approved by the Committee. Candidates must be British subjects and graduates of British universities. Application should be made, through the head of the candidate's department, to the Secretary, Colonial Medical Research Committee, c/o Research Department, Colonial Office, London, S.W.I.
