Eleanor Grove Scholarships for Women Students


Founded in 1912 by the will of Miss Rosa Morison, Lady Superintendent of Women Students, 1883-1912, to commemorate Eleanor Grove, First Principal of College Hall, Byng Place, 1882-1900, and Life Governor of University College, and for the promotion and encouragement of the study of and proficiency in German.

  1. Two Scholarships, known as Eleanor Grove Scholarships, may be awarded in each session.
  2. The Scholarships are awarded by the Council on the recommendation of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
  3. The Scholarships are awarded for German Language and Literature.
  4. The value of each Scholarship is £950 a session.
  5. A candidate must be a woman student of the College, and must have attended for not less than five terms a course of study in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The Scholarship will be awarded to assist a student who is reading for a higher degree, or, in special cases, to enable a student to prosecute abroad a course of study in German for the B.A. Degree.
  6. A candidate must send written notice of her intention to compete for a Scholarship to the Registrar of the College on or before 25 May. She must give particulars of the research work which she intends to pursue in the event of the Scholarship being awarded to her, and of the place or places (either at home or abroad) where she intends to pursue it; or, alternatively, a student who wishes to prosecute a course of study abroad for a first degree should send in a written application not later than a month before the end of the term preceding the period she desires to spend abroad.
  7. The qualifications of candidates are considered by the Head of the Department of German.
  8. The Scholars elected must pursue a course of study or research, either at University College or elsewhere, approved by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
  9. The Scholarships are tenable for one session or for part of a session.
  10. If a Scholarship is held at the College payment is made in three equal instalments, on 15 November, 15 February and 15 May. Alternatively, if the student has so requested, it may be applied to the payment of fees at the opening of the session, the residue, if any, being payable on the dates in question. Where the residue is less than £6, the whole amount is payable on 15 November. If a Scholarship is held elsewhere payment is made in such form as may be determined by the Council.
  11. Awards are subject to the provisions of the General Regulations.
