BURSARIES, SCHOLARSHIPS, FELLOWSHIPS, AND PRIZES IN THE FACULTY OF ARTS.
The greater number of the Bursaries are open to competition without any restriction. There are on an average about forty Bursaries thus open every year to students commencing their studies in the Faculty of Arts. Competition Bursaries which came into operation prior to 30th August, 1864, are open without restriction as to sex; almost all the other Bursaries are restricted to male candidates. One general examination, known as the Bursary Competition, is held in the month of June, and the Bursaries according to their value are awarded to the successful candidates in order of merit. The allocation of Bursaries takes place immediately before the commencement of the Winter Term.
The Bursary Competition was formerly conducted on the papers set for the Preliminary Examination, with an additional paper in English, but independent papers are now set and marked in accordance with scheme detailed on page 185.
No student is allowed to hold at one time more than one Bursary or Scholarship, except in cases provided for by the Regulations. Certain of the Bursaries are not of a fixed annual value, but consist of the free income of the Foundation or a proportion thereof. The following Bursaries are tenable under this condition: Campbell, Cowe and Clerihew, Ruddiman and Bruce, Stuart, Findlay, Greig and Mackintosh, Launie. The values of such Bursaries, as stated in the Calendar, are given as approximate estimates only.
Bursars may incur suspension or forfeiture of their Bursaries by misconduct. All Bursars are specially bound to assist by example and co-operation with the Authorities in maintaining order and discipline.
*The Redhyth, Smith (Fordyce), and Stuart (Fordyce) Bursaries, formerly given by presentation, are now awarded under the conditions and regulations embodied in the Endowments Commissioners' scheme dealing with these foundations. These bursaries vary in number, the average being four each year.
