UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS.

CRAVEN'S SCHOLARS.

The Cambridge trustees are, the Bishop of Peterborough, the Bishop of Bath and Wells, and the Master of Trinity college. Electors, the Vice-Chancellor, the five Regius Professors, and the Public Orator. Whenever a vacancy occurs, any undergraduate may offer himself a candidate by signifying his intention in a Latin letter addressed to the above electors, within the time limited by the Programma which declares the vacancy. If any one of the name or kindred of the founder should be in indigent circumstances, and a scholar of this University, he, (by the Will) is to be preferred. This annuity cannot be enjoyed after

Wherever there is an omission of a year, no prize was adjudged.

1 Translator of Horace.

The Examiners also gave notice, that should any Poem appear to them to possess distinguished merit, a premium of 1001, would be adjudged. The above premium was this year awarded to the Rev. T. E. HANKINSON, M.A. Corpus Christi College.

fourteen years standing in the University, nor by any one who may attain to preferment of double its value. The possessors are not allowed to be abesnt from the University above three months in the year, without the express permission of the Vice-Chancellor or the major part of the electors then resident in the University.

These rules have been modified in part by the regulations enacted in 1817; which will be found at the end of this list of University Scholarships.

By a decree of the Court of Chancery, in 1819, the income of the Scholars has been augmented to £50. per annum each, and three additional Scholarships founded, under the same regulations as the preceding, except that they cannot be held for more than seven years.

THE REV. WILLIAM BELL, D.D. Prebendary of the collegiate church of Westminster, and late Fellow of Magdalene college in this University, in the year 1810, transferred £15,200. stock, 3 per cents., to the University of Cambridge, in trust, to found eight new Scholarships. The Scholars to be the sons or the orphans of those Clergymen of the Church of England, whose circumstances and situations are altogether such as not to enable them to bear the whole expense of sending their sons to this University. On the receipt of this benefaction, Scholars were elected in such a manner, and for such a period, that two Scholarships will become vacant every year.

The regulations of these Scholarships are, that candidates for them must be in their first year of admission, i. e. they must have been admitted between the last and last but one Commencement preceding the October Term in which they begin to reside; and every Scholar elected on this foundation shall promise in writing to take the degree of B.A. in the most regular way Where personal merits are equal, those are to be preferred who stand most in need of assistance. If any Scholar shall degrade or determine, and go out in a bye term, or declare for law, or be rusticated or expelled, his Scholarship shall be ipso facto vacant. The profits to continue for four years, and no more. No persons shall ever have two sons Scholars, nor shall there be two orphans, brothers, Scholars at the same time. If no sons or orphans of clergymen shall be found properly qualified for these Scholarships, then, and then only, the electors shall elect the sons of laymen, being undergraduates, who stand in need of assistance. No Scholar to be elected from King's College, or from Trinity Hall.

The electors are, the Vice-Chancellor, the Regius Professors of Divinity and the Civil Law, the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics and the Public Orator; and the election takes place on the Friday after Midlent Sunday.

In the following list, wherever two or more gentlemen are recorded as æquales, their literary merits were considered by the electors as nearly equal. In this case the choice of the Scholar or

Scholars was made simply on the ground of pecuniary circumstances, according to the express direction of the Supplemental clause to Dr Bell's Deed of Foundation.
