5. REID SCHOLARSHIPS.
Founded in 1902, in accordance with Bequest by the late Mr. John Reid, Advocate in Aberdeen, the terms of which will be found in Appendix N., Calendar 1903-4.
The following Regulations have been framed by the Trustees of the Founder:
The Trustees, in framing Regulations in accordance with the bequest by the late Mr. John Reid, have not thought it necessary to determine the precise number of Scholarships and Grants to be awarded annually. The Scholarships and Grants are open to all distinguished Graduates holding the Degree of Master of Arts of the University of Aberdeen,-the object of the bequest being to assist such Graduates "to continue to prosecute their Studies in Literary or Linguistic Philology, Philosophy, Science, the Fine Arts, or any other branches of Higher Learning at any English or Foreign University, College, or Seminary of Higher Learning," The Scholarships and Grants will be awarded by the Trustees subject to the following conditions:
1. The Scholarships or Grants will be of such value as the Trustees may in each case determine, and will be payable by half-yearly instalments in advance, the second instalment being payable on the receipt of a satisfactory report and certificate from one of the authorities under whom a Holder of a Scholarship or Grant is prosecuting his studies; and the Trustees may suspend or withhold payment if not satisfied with his progress or conduct. 2. Scholarships or Grants will ordinarily be tenable for one year, but may be renewed if the Trustees deem such renewal to be expedient.
3. The Trustees may supplement the amount of any Scholarship or Grant already held by an applicant; or in the event of a
Holder of a Scholarship or Grant from this Trust subsequently obtaining any other Scholarship or Grant or position of emolument, the Trustees may either reduce or cancel the amount allowed by them.
4. In accepting a Scholarship or Grant, the applicant comes under an obligation to submit from time to time such reports of his studies as the Trustees may require.
5. Application Forms must be signed by the Applicant and by two Professors or Lecturers of the University of Aberdeen under whom the Applicant has studied during his curriculum. The Application Form must contain full and precise answers to he questions therein set forth, and must be lodged with the Trustees not later than 30th June in each year.
The Trustees desire to impress upon Professors and Lecturers the necessity of recommending only such students as are capable of being materially benefited by the continuance of their studies, and are likely to proceed subsequently to original work.
The Trustees may decline to award a Scholarship or a Grant without being required to give any reason for their decision.
Application Forms may be had from J. R. DEAN, S.S.C., 12 Golden
6. CROOM ROBERTSON FELLOWSHIP.
Founded in 1897 in memory of the late Professor George Croom Robertson, M. A., Abdn., 1861, London.
The following are the provisions for the regulation of the management, bestowal and enjoyment of the Fellowship.
I. The capital shall remain invested in consolidated annuities.
II. The annually accruing interest shall be paid to the holder of the Fellowship minus the absolutely necessary expenses of management. For so long, however, as the interest on the capital exceeds £200, only this amount will be paid to the Fellow, and any surplus shall be credited to capital. In the event of any income falling in owing to a temporary vacancy or any other cause this income shall be added to the capital
III. The Fellowship shall not be tenable simultaneously with any other Fellowship, Scholarship or Bursary which may be held only by a student or graduate of the University of Aberdeen. In regard to Fellowships and Scholarships which are foundations of other Universities or Corporations than the University of Aberdeen, the Nominating Committee hereinafter appointed shall have power to decide which, if any, of them may be held simultaneously with this Fellowship.
IV. The Fellowship shall be held by the same person for three (3) years, commencing with the First day of May in the year of appointment, or for such shorter period as the holder acts up to the conditions on which it is bestowed.
V. The award of the Fellowship shall be made on some suitable date in April or May after the declaration of the names of the Graduates in
Arts of the year, and the first award shall take place in the April or May immediately succeeding the date of the foundation of this Fellowship. As a rule, a new appointment will be made every third year, but on the occurrence of a vacancy through the death or disqualification of the holder, a new selection shall be made in the next April or May following thereon, and this holder's three years shall count from the first day of May in the year of his selection.
Provided always that if the award be not made in the month of April the tenure of the Fellowship shall date from the first day of May in the year of appointment.
VI. The Fellowship shall be awarded to one who has studied in the University of Aberdeen from the time of his matriculation up to the time of his taking the Degree of Master of Arts, who has not completed seven (7) years from the date of his first matriculation as a regular student, who has graduated with honours in Classics or in Mental Science and Philosophy, or in both, within the three years immediately preceding the date of the award, and who is judged likely to continue his studies with credit to himself and to the University. To obviate possible doubts it is hereby provided that it shall be no bar to the eligibility of a graduate either (1) that the continuity of his attendance as a student at the University of Aberdeen has been temporarily interrupted through ill-health or other valid disabling cause, or (2) that for a part of his curriculum previous to graduation he has given attendance at another University, provided that the period of such attendance elsewhere do not altogether exceed one year. None other than a graduate with honours in Classics or in Mental Science and Philosophy shall be eligible for appointment to the Fellowship.
VII. The award shall be made by the Senatus on the report and recommendation of the Nominating Committee. This Committee, which is hereby constituted, shall be composed of the Professors for the time being in the Chairs of Humanity and of Greek and of Moral Philosophy and of Logic. The senior of these Professors, in virtue of the date of his appointment, shall be, ex officio, the Convener of this Committee, and is hereby empowered to convene the Committee as occasion may require.
VIII. meeting of the said Committee shall be held in accordance with the provisions of Section V. when an appointment has to be made, or a vacancy is about to occur, in order to consider and adjudicate on the records and claims of the candidates eligible in the particular instance. For the purposes of this trust it will be sufficient advertisement to insert a notice in the ordinary advertisement board, intimating a month before the date of meeting that the Nominating Committee will proceed to the selection of a Fellow, so that candidates eligible may, if they so choose, formulate their claims.
IX. The following shall be the procedure in the meeting of the Nominating Committee:
(1) If the Committee, whether all four are present or three only (the fourth being absent, either through the existence of a vacancy or from any other cause), decide unanimously or by a majority of three against one in favour of any one of the following courses, they shall have power to act accordingly: either
