The Krebs Memorial Scholarship
An appeal was launched at the Biochemical Society's Meeting in December 1982 to commemorate the life and work of Sir Hans Krebs, FRS, by instituting a post-graduate (Ph.D.) scholarship in biochemistry or allied biomedical science, tenable at any British university. The generous response of many of Sir Hans' pupils, colleagues and admirers in many countries has provided sufficient funds to allow a scholarship to be awarded in alternate years.
The Scholarship is primarily intended to help candidates who wish to study for the degree of Ph.D. in biochemistry or in an allied biomedical science, but whose careers have been interrupted for non-academic reasons beyond their own control and/or who are unlikely to qualify for an award from public funds. There are no restrictions on nationality. It will cover a maintenance grant and all necessary fees. The Scholarship will be awarded for one year in the first instance but may be renewed up to a maximum tenure of three years. Where the Scholarship is renewed to the current holder, it will not be available to new applicants until that tenure has come to an end.
Applicants will be expected to have made prior arrangements with the university at which they intend to hold the award. The application should be forwarded through the head of department concerned who must be able to place the applicant in the top 5% of Ph.D candidates.
Whilst the Scholarship is primarily aimed at Ph.D. students, the award of a post-doctoral Fellowship might be considered for a candidate whose circumstances merit such consideration.
The scholarship has only just been awarded and is unlikely to become available again until Autumn 2005.
