The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 50

Scholarships and Prizes

Scholarships and Prizes.

In pursuance of the terms of a donation of $6,000, heretofore made to the University for the benefit of the Law School, six free scholarships are established in this Department; also an annual prize of $50 in money tor the best thesis upon some legal topic, to be publicly awarded at the Law Commencement. Other prizes are offered from time to time.

As far as practicable, the scholarships will be equally divided between the two classes—depending upon the number and success of the candidates for scholarships in either class.

Applicants for free scholarships should apply in person or by letter to the Dean, furnishing written testimonials of at least two respectable persons to the satisfaction of the Faculty, showing that the pecuniary circumstances of the applicant are such as to make him deserving of this assistance, that he is of good character and standing, and that he has received a good English education at least. Applicants not personally known to any of the Faculty will do well to state fully and precisely their age, places of birth and residence, present occupation, education (both general and legal) and any other circumstances that may be of weight in making a selection. Such communications will be held strictly confidential.

Applicants for Senior Scholarships, in addition to page 105 the above, will be required to pass all examinations upon the studies of the preceding Junior year.

As the applicants for free scholarships are usually far in excess of the number that can be given, no student will hereafter have the benefit of such scholarship for more than one term.

Competition for the prize referred to is confined to the regular members of the graduating class in each year, under regulations announced at the opening of the term.
