UNIVEESITY SCHOLARSHIPS.



Ceaven Scholarships and Fellowships.

John, Lord Craven of Eyton, by his Will dated May 28, 1647, directed
that "out of the yearly rents and profits" of an estate purchased by
him in Sussex ,£100 per annum should " be raised towards the main-
tenance of four poor Scholars," two at Oxford, and two at Cambridge,
and that the surplus revenue of the estate should " be employed and
bestowed for and towards the redemption of English Christian cap-
tives, prisoners in Algiers or in any other places under the dominion
of the Turk." He died a few months afterwards, his Executor declined
to act, and in December, 1648, his elder brother William, Lord Craven
of Hampsted-Marshall, (afterwards created Earl of Craven,) having
been appointed Administrator, drew up certain regulations for the
election of the Scholars, which were approved by Convocation in Octo-
ber, 1649. Those regulations, agreeably to the Founder's desire, allowed
a preference in all cases to persons of his " kindred or name," but
otherwise the Scholarships were to be awarded after an examination in
classical learning, in which no Graduate could be a Candidate, nor any
Fellow or Scholar of a College. Each Scholarship was tenable for
fourteen years from matriculation, or until the Scholar attained to some
" preferment of a double value." The electors were the Vice-Chancellor,
the Begins Professors, and the Public Orator.

In 1664, William, Lord Craven, with the consent of both Universities,
transferred the estate, subject to the trusts created by his brother's will,
to a body of Trustees, whose successors now hold it.

In March, 1819, it was determined by the Court of Chancery that
the second part of the trust had come to an end from want of objects,
and a Decree was made increasing the number of Scholars from four
to ten, five for each University, and assigning to each Scholar an
annual stipend of ,£50 for seven years from his election. Subsequently,
the rents of the estate having improved, the stipends were increased
to ,£'75. And by a Decree of the Court of Chancery, together with a
Statute of the University approved by the Queen in Council in 1858,
the Foundation for Oxford, and the regulations concerning it, the
Scholarships were made six in number, tenable for three years, with
stipends of ,£80 a-year each, two Scholars being elected every year in
Act Term.

Under a scheme sanctioned by the High Court of Justice in 1886
there are now two Fellowships and six Scholarships.

The Fellowships are tenable for two years, with an annual stipend
of ,£200 each. Candidates must have passed the Examinations
required for the degree of B.A., and not have exceeded twenty-eight

Terms from matriculation. One Fellow is elected annually in
Michaelmas Term by a committee of five persons appointed for the

purpose K the Board of the faculty of Arts (Literoe Humaniores).
The Committee may eled cither without examination, or after such
examination iu Greek and Latin literature, history, and antiquities, or
in some parts of these subjects, as they shall think fit. Every Fellow
is required bo spend at least eight months of each year of his tenure
of the Fellowship iu residence abroad for the purpose of study at some
place in- places approved by the electing Committee.

The Scholarships are tenable for two years, with an annual
stipend of ,£'40 each. Candidates must lie members of the University
who have not exceeded sixteen Terms from matriculation. Three
Scholars are elected annually in Michaelmas Term after an exami-
nation conducted by three persons nominated by the Committee above-
mentioned. The examination is the same as that for the Ireland
Scholarship, and the person elected to that Scholarship, if he has not
already gained a Craven Scholarship, is elected at the same time
to the first Craven Scholarship. No person can be elected a second
time to a Craven Scholarship.

Eadcliffe's Travelling Fellowships.

Dr. Kadcliffe, the Founder of the Library which bears his name,
bequeathed to University College an estate in Yorkshire charged with
the payment of ,£600 per annum to " two persons, to be chosen out of
" the University of Oxford, when they are Masters of Arts and entered
"on the Physic line, for the maintenance of the said two persons for
" the space of ten years, and no longer, the half of which time at least
" they are to travel in parts beyond sea for their better improvement ;"
and he provided them with chambers in that College. The first two
Fellows were elected in July, 1715, less than nine months after the
death of the Founder.

By an Ordinance of the University Commissioners under the Act of
1854, instead of two Fellowships with stipends of ,£300 a-year each for
ten years, there are now three Fellowships, each of the annual value of
,£200, and tenable for three years only. Candidates need not be Mas-
ters of Arts or entered on the Physic line, but they must have passed
all the Examinations required for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, and
must either have been placed in the First Class in one at least of the
Public Examinations of the University, or have obtained some Univer-
sity Prize or Scholarship open to general competition. Each Candidate
must declare that he intends to graduate in Medicine in the University
of Oxford with the view of engaging in the practice of Medicine, and
to travel abroad with a view to his improvement in that study ; and no
one is to be elected who is legally authorised to practise as a Physician.
But in case no person willing to make such a declaration shall offer
himself as a Candidate, or no person of sufficient merit for election, the
Fellowship then vacant is to be thrown open to all persons who have
been placed in the First Class in the School of Natural Science, whether
authorised to practise or not, and the person then elected is not to be
required to make such declaration.



VINERIAN SCHOLARSHIPS. 113

Candidates are to be examined in such subjects connected with
Medical Science, and by such official persons in Oxford, as the Electors
shall appoint.

The Electors are the same as for Radcliffe's Librarian, (see ante,
page 90).

A Fellow forfeits his Fellowship by spending more than eighteen
months within the United Kingdom.

Vikeeian Scholarships.

These have their endowment from the same Founder as the Pro-
fessorship of English Law. Their number, and the amount of the
stipends assigned to them, have been changed from time to time by
Convocation according to the state of the Vinerian fund, which now
amounts by accumulations to nearly ,£20,000. For many years before
1854 there were two Fellows and five Scholar?, each elected for ten
years, and receiving stipends, the former of ,£50, the latter of £'S0 >
a-year. By a Statute made in 1853 it was enacted that in future

H

there should be only one Fellow, elected at first f< >r five years, Imt
capable of being continued lor rive more, with an annual stipend of

,£100. and five Scholars, each elected for five years, with an annual
stipend of X'35.

A new Statute, approved by the Queen in Council in 1867, suppressed
the Fellowship, and ordained that henceforth there should be three
Scholars, each elected for three years, with an annual stipend of £80.
One Scholar, and one only, is to be elected every year in Lent Term.
Candidates must be members of the University who have completed
two Fears and have not exceeded six years from their matriculation.

The election is vested in a board consisting of the Vice-Chancellor,
all the Professors of Law, and the Public Examiners in the School of
Jurisprudence; who are to appoint for each election three examiners,
including one at least of themselves. The subjects of examination are
the Civil Law, International Law, General Jurisprudence, and especially
the Law of England both public and private.

Each Scholar is to satisfy the Vice-Chancellor every year that he
belongs to one of the Inns of Court, or at least that he is bona fide
studying English Law.

Dean Ireland's Scholarships.

Four Scholarships "for the promotion of Classical learning and taste
were founded in the year 1825 by John Ireland, D.D., of Oriel College,
Dean of Westminster, the same munificent person who became after-
wards by his Will the Founder of the Professorship of Exegesis. He gave
for their endowment ,£4000 in £3 per cent. Consolidated Annuities,
now represented by a sum of £5813 8s. del. invested on mortgage.

One Scholar, and one only, is elected every year in Michaelmas
Term. Candidates must be Undergraduate Members of the University
who have not exceeded the sixteenth Term from their matriculation.

Each Scholarship is of the annual value of £30, and is tenable for four
years, provided the Scholar keeps by residence two Terms in each year.

The examination is the same as that for the Craven Scholarships,
and the person elected to the Ireland Scholarship is, if he has not
already gained one of them, elected to the first Craven Scholarship.

Eldon Law Scholarship.

In the year 1830 the Subscribers to a Testimonial in honour of John,
first Earl of Eldon, Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain for twenty-
five years (1801— 1806 and 1807—1827), resolved to establish a Law
Scholarship w T ith the moneys contributed, for the purpose of " recording
" Lord Eldon's connection with the Profession of the Law, and with the
" University of which he was so distinguished an ornament, and, at the
" same time, of conferring a real benefit, as well as a distinction, upon
" meritorious individuals, who may have to struggle with difficulties in
" the early part of their professional career,"

The management of the fund, including the election of the Scholar,
is vested in fifteen Trustees, who must be Subscribers, or descendants
of Subscribers, and Protestants.

Candidates must be " Protestants of the Church of England, and
" Members of the University of Oxford, who, having passed their Exaniin-

be addressed to the Secretary to the Trustees, and that no application
made by or on behalf of a Candidate to any individual Trustee be
entertained.

The Scholarship is tenable for three years, running from June 4,
Lord Eldon's birthday, provided the Scholar keep his Terms regularly
at one of the Inns of Court. By a Bye-Law passed in 1854, it is pro-
