Corte Studentship in Mathematics

Founded in 1953 under the will of Mrs Edith Abbott in memory of her adopted son Orazio Abbott Corte, BSc, a former student of the College, who was killed in action November 1916, in the First World War

  1. A Studentship, known as the Corte Studentship in Mathematics, may be awarded when there is a vacancy.

  2. The Studentship is awarded by the Council on the recommendation of the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences.

  3. The Studentship is awarded for Mathematics.

  4. The value of the Corte Studentship may fluctuate from year to year but will be in the region of £500.

  5. A candidate must have attained a graduate status before taking up the Studentship. They need not be students of the College at the time of candidature.

  6. Candidates must send written notice of their intention to compete for the Studentship to the Registrar of the College on or before 15 May. They must give particulars of their academic record and of the work they intend to pursue in the event of the Studentship being awarded to them.

  7. The qualifications of candidates are considered by the Head of the Department of Mathematics.

  8. Normally the Student elected must pursue a course of study and research for a higher degree at the University College. They may be permitted, in exceptional circumstances, to pursue a course elsewhere if the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences approves.

  9. The Studentship is awarded in the first instance for one session, but may be renewed for a second session on the recommendation of the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, if funds are available.

  10. If the Studentship is held at the College, payment is made in three equal instalments, on 15 November, 16 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 the Studentship 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.
