1. ROBERT FLETCHER SCHOLARSHIP (in Mathematics). Founded in 1885, by A. P. Fletcher, Esq., Abercorn Place, St. John's Wood, London, in memory of his brother, the late Robert Fletcher, sometime Accountant in Aberdeen, thereafter in London, for proficiency in the Mathematical and Physical Sciences. The Scholarship is of the annual value of £30 or thereby, tenable for two years, but not along with a Fullerton, Moir, and Gray Scholarship. Candidates must be Masters of Arts of under two years standing. The successful Candidate will be required to satisfy the Senatus that, during his tenure of the Scholarship, he is prosecuting the higher Mathematical or Physical Studies, either at an English or Foreign University, or in such other way as the Senatus may approve. The Examination is conducted in December simultaneously with that for the Fullerton, Moir, and Gray Scholarships. In the event of a suitable Candidate not coming forward at the December Examination, the Senatus are empowered to present to the current year's revenue any Magistrand who shall graduate with Honours in the following April, or any Graduate of older standing whom they may think most deserving provided always that the person so presented shall conform to the general conditions of tenure of the Scholarship in regard to the prosecution of his studies.
2. FULLERTON, Moir, and Gray.
(1) Instituted under Ordinance (1858, No. 47). By alteration of said Ordinance, approved by the Queen in Council, 28th June, 1875, the number of Scholarships is seven. Two of the annual value of £100 each or thereby, to be awarded for distinction in Classical Literature, including Greek and Latin, tenable for two years. Two of the annual value of £100 each or thereby to be awarded for distinction in Mental Philosophy, including Logic, Metaphysics, and Moral Philosophy, tenable for two years; and three of the annual value of £75 each or thereby, to be awarded for distinction in Mathematics, including pure Mathematics and Natural Philosophy, tenable for three years. They are open for competition to all Graduates in Arts of less than two years' standing. One Scholarship in each of the three departments is awarded in each year.
(2) By Ordinance No. 117 of the Universities Commissioners (1889) a Scholarship of £100 per annum, tenable for two years, was instituted on James Fullerton's Foundation. The Scholarship is to be awarded for distinction in one of the Honours Groups of Subjects for the Degree of Master of Arts or in one of the groups of subjects for the Final Examination for the Degree of Bachelor of Science, as the Senatus, with the approval of the University Court, may from time to time determine. The Scholarship has meantime been appropriated to the Faculty of Science.
(Until 1875, a single Scholarship was given for Classics and Mental Philosophy; since that date there has been a separate Scholarship for each Department.)
