Subject: English & Applied Ling - MPhil/ RCEAL, Cambridge

The Research Centre for English and Applied Linguistics at The University 
of Cambridge now has a bursary scheme for their M PHIL IN ENGLISH AND 
APPLIED LINGUISTICS.

Applications from candidates, normally resident in Great Britain or the 
European Union Countries, are invited to enter the competition for the 
RCEAL Bursary Scheme.

Up to two full bursaries may be awarded, each year, to candidates accepted 
for a place on the M Phil in English and Applied Linguistics. A full 
bursary is intended to cover the cost of the University Composition Fees, 
College Membership Fee and Maintenance for the duration of the nine-month 
course.

In addition, two partial bursaries will be awarded, each year, to 
candidates accepted for a place on the M Phil in English and Applied 
Linguistics. A partial bursary is intended to cover the cost of the 
University Composition fee and the College Membership Fee.

Applications will be judged on the basis of comparative academic 
achievement and promise. Candidates intending to apply for a bursary 
should state this clearly on the Application for Admission as a Graduate 
Student (CIGAS) Form in Section S. The details of where to obtain these 
forms can be found at http://www.rceal.cam.ac.uk

If you intend to apply for a RCEAL bursary the deadline for submission of 
the CIGAS application form is 31 March.

Successful candidates will be notified by 1 June. Bursaries, or 
scholarships, obtained by the candidate from other sources will be deducted 
from the award offered by RCEAL. Candidates are not eligible for a bursary 
from RCEAL if they are awarded a full bursary, or scholarship, from other 
sources.

Students intending to continue to undertake research for a PhD (having 
successfully obtained the M Phil at the required level) should note that 
there are a number of different sources available within the University as 
well as the Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB). RCEAL may also make 
a further contribution to PhD students.

Queries about the RCEAL Bursary scheme should be addressed to the Graduate 
Secretary at bej12cam.ac.uk

Further information about University/college awards and AHRB awards may be 
obtained from the Board of Graduate Studies at
