Graduating seniors from Rider are eligible to apply for a fellowship that supports up to two years of study at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge in England
through the Davies-Jackson Scholarship program.
Established in 1990, the Davies-Jackson Scholarship provides a distinctive opportunity for graduating seniors who possess exceptional academic records and who are the first in their families to graduate from college, to enroll in a two-year course of study at St. John’s College. The Council of Independent Colleges assumed administration of the scholarship in 1996. The scholarship, valued at approximately $50,000 per student
, is funded by an anonymous donor who wishes to provide the same opportunities at St. John’s that he was afforded as a young man.
Applications are accepted for study in the following subjects: archaeology and anthropology; classics; economics; English; geography; history; history of art; modern and medieval languages; music; philosophy; and social and political sciences.
The deadline for applications is November 1, 2013
. Applications will be reviewed by a ten-person U.S. Selection Committee who will forward the most promising applications to Cambridge in December for review by admissions tutors in each subject matter. Should an applicant be selected for admission, he or she will be contacted by Cambridge in January 2014.
