A Scholarship of £30, tenable for one year, offered at the FirstYear Examination in Arts each October, open to all candidates who do not hold any Scholarship or Exhibition. Students entering from Theological Colleges may be candidates for this Scholarship. Of the above, two Scholarships of $70, one of £40, one Exhibition of £20, and one Second-year Scholarship of £30, are open to competition at the beginning of every Michaelmas Term; and one Scholarship of £70, one of £30, and one Secondyear Scholarship of £30 at the beginning of every Epiphany Term. Besides these Foundation Scholarships and Exhibitions there are also the following of private foundation open to Students in Arts :The Gisborne Scholarship, £30, tenable for one year, open to candidates for the First Year Examination in Arts holding no Scholarship or Exhibition, and also to Students entering from Theological Colleges in connexion with the University. The Lindsay, £46 a year, tenable for three years, by natives of the Diocese of Durham who have been three years at least pupils at the Durham Grammar School, with a preference for the kin of the late Ralph Lindsay. The Ellerton, £27 a year, tenable by natives of Yorkshire, with a preference for those of the North Riding, educated at Richmond Grammar School. The Newby, £25 a year, tenable by Students in Arts until they are of sufficient standing for the degree of B.A. The annual value of Scholarships and Exhibitions open to Students in Theology amounts to nearly £800. Theological Scholarships and Exhibitions. Six Exhibitions of £20 each (for persons of limited means), tenable for two years. Two Second-year Exhibitions of £30 each, tenable for one year. Two Exhibitions of £40 each, for Students in Theology who have passed the Examination for the Degree of B.A. in the University of Durham, or in some other University where the Examinations are of similar character; payable after the Examination for the Licence has been passed. Of the above, Two Scholarships of £60, and one of £30, one Exhibition of £30 and two of £20, one Second-year Exhibition of £30, and one Graduates' Exhibition of £40, are open to competition at the beginning of every Michaelmas Term; and one Scholarship of £60, one Exhibition of £30 (tenable for one year), and one of £20, one Second-year Exhibition of £30, and one Graduates' Exhibition of £40 at the beginning of every Epiphany Term. Besides these there is one of private foundation :The Barry, £30 a year, tenable for one year. There are two small foundations which may be held by Students either in Arts or Theology The Thorp, £15 a year, tenable for one year on condition of residence, study, conformity to discipline, and limited means. The Maltby, £10 a year, tenable for one year on the same condition as the Thorp, with a preference to members of Hatfield Hall. Lastly there is the Van Mildert Scholarship, £50 a year, tenable for one year by a Bachelor of Arts who is a Student in Theology. There is nothing analogous to this for Licentiates in Theology who become Students in Arts, a fact to be borne in mind by those who aim at both the Degree and the Licence: obviously the Degree should be taken first. No holder of a Foundation Scholarship of £70 a year can hold together with it any other Foundation Scholarship, except the Classical and Mathematical Scholarships, or any Scholarships or Exhibitions of Private Foundation (exclusive of the Barry Scholarship) amounting to £30 a year. No holder of a Foundation Scholarship of £30 a year can hold together with it a Foundation Scholarship of £70 a year, or Scholarships or Exhibitions of any kind (exclusive of the Classical, Mathematical, and Barry Scholarships) amounting to £70 a year. No holder of a Foundation Scholarship of £40 a year can hold together with it Scholarships or Exhi bitions of any kind (exclusive of the Classical, Mathematical, and Barry Scholarships) amounting to £60 a year. Prizes. Three Prize Exhibitions, one of £30 and two of £25 each, for Students in Theology on passing their Final Examination at the end of Easter Term, and one of £30 and one of £25 at the end of Michaelmas Term every year. Prizes of smaller amount are given annually for Classics, Mathematics, Theology, Hebrew, Hellenistic Greek, and Modern Languages. Four Prizes of £5 each are given annually for Hebrew. A Prize of £6, founded by Mrs Long, is given annually for Reading Besides these there are four prizes given at the end of each term for excellence in the work done in Collections, two in Arts and two in Theology. One of £2 10s. for candidates for Honours in Arts. Fellowships. There are eight University Fellowships open to all Students who have graduated in Arts, of £120 and £150 a year, tenable for eight years by a layman, and ten years by one who has taken Holy Orders. They are awarded by Examination, but “the Warden and Senate, in making their election, shall have due regard to the candidates' place on the Class Lists at the Public Examinations." This shows the importance of securing the highest Honours at the Public Examinations. Almost without exception the persons elected Fellows during the last twelve years had previously obtained First Classes. A Fellowship is vacated by marriage, or at the expiration of one year after admission to any Cathedral preferment, or to any benefice. The Warden has power to require any Fellow to take part in the Public Examinations, and to call him into residence. CHAPTER IX. MODE OF PROCEEDING TO DEGREES AND LICENCES. EVERYONE who wishes to proceed to a Degree or Licence must give due notice to the Senior Proctor, who usually announces beforehand the time at which such persons may call upon him. The Senior Proctor has to take care that all candidates for Degrees and Licences (1) are of the necessary University standing ; (2) have passed the necessary Examinations ; (3) have paid the necessary fees. Consequently the candidates must be prepared to furnish evidence of the first two points, and to comply with the third. Very commonly the Degree of B.A. and the Licence in Theology are taken at the end of the sixth term. As six terms are required for each, care must be taken to keep the necessary 45 days of the sixth term before the day of Convocation, and also to obtain a certificate of having kept the term from the Registrar to shew to the Senior Proctor. This can be done as late as the morning before Convocation, which almost invariably is held at 2 P.M. Candidates for Licences and Degrees in Theology have (besides the three points just named) to sign a declaration that they are “ bonâ fide members of the Church of England as by law established.” No subscription is required in any other case. It frequently happens that students do not keep all their terms consecutively, or else allow an interval of non-residence to elapse between their sixth term and the time of taking their Degree. For every such term of non-residence Absentee Fees have to be paid, amounting in the case of members of University College or of Hatfield Hall to £1 10s. a term, to be paid to the Bursar of the College or Hall, and in the case of Unattached Students to £1 a term, to be paid to the Senior Proctor. No student is required to pay Absentee Fees for more than three terms of non-residence. Licentiates in Theology cannot proceed to any Degree in Theology without previously taking the Degrees of B.A. and M.A. Bachelors of Arts, when they are of nine terms (three years) standing from the date of their Degree, can proceed to the Degree of M.A. If they have taken Honours in the Final Examination, or have taken the Licence in Theology after their Degree, they have no further exercise or examination. But an ordinary Bachelor of Arts has to do an Essay on a set subject, which he may learn from the Senior Proctor several months before the time for taking the Degree of M.A. The essay must be sent to the Senior Proctor ten days or more before the day of Convocation, and unless it is approved the candidate cannot take the Degree. If the essay is approved, the candidate has nothing further to do, except to satisfy the Senior Proctor as to his standing, and to pay the requisite fee. It invariably happens that most if not all of the nine terms which must elapse between the Degrees of B.A. and M.A. are terms of non-residence. For these terms Absentee Fees have to be paid, amounting in all cases to ten shillings a term. No B.A. is required to pay Absentee Fees for more than nine terms. Bachelors of Arts, when they are of eighteen terms (six years) standing from matriculation, can proceed to the Degree of Bachelor of Civil Law. For this Degree there is an examination held at irregular intervals, according as candidates present themselves. The subjects are as follows: Institutes of Justinian, i. ü. Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Chap. xliv., with the notes in Milman's Edition. |
