Two new graduate scholarships funded by Queen’s Old Members

21 December 2017

We are grateful to the JJC Foundation (founded by John P Clay, Oriental Studies, 1954 and his wife Jennifer Coutts Clay) and an Old Member based in the United States who have enabled the creation of  two new graduate scholarships:

The John P Clay Scholarship in Manuscript and Text Cultures will fund a DPhil within Queen’s Centre for Text and Manuscript Cultures, with a special focus on Sanskrit.  The Foundation has also generously funded The John P Clay Sanskrit Desk and Library in the Lower Library, where print and digital versions of the entire Clay Sanskrit Library will be available in the spring. The Scholarship has benefited from joint funding by the Clarendon Fund. 

The Ewald Scholarship in Law will fund the living costs of one BCL or MJur graduate student each year for the next four years.  The scholarship is named for Professor William Ewald, a former Junior Research Fellow at Queen’s, now an internationally recognised scholar in legal philosophy and comparative law. Professor Ewald will meet the successful Ewald Scholar each year here at Queen’s. The Scholarship has benefited from joint funding by the Law Faculty.

More details about the scholarships can be found here.

There is very little funding available to graduate students these days.  These scholarships, the first resulting from our new fund-raising programme Access All Areas,  will enable outstanding students to come to Queen’s to continue their studies. We are deeply grateful to both our donors and look forward to building on this promising start to the academic year.
