Applications Now Accepted for CIC Davies-Jackson Scholarship (deadline 11/1/2014)

DePaul graduating seniors 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 B.A. program as an affiliated student at St. John’s College.

While officially a second B.A., the “Cantab Degree ”, as it is known, is usually considered to be the equivalent of an M.A. in the United States. The Scholarship, valued at approximately $50,000, is offered annually.

Applications are accepted for study in the following subjects: Classics; Economics; English; Geography; History;History of Art; Human, Social, and Political Sciences (includes politics, international relations, sociology, anthropology, and archaeology); Modern and Medieval Languages; Music; Philosophy; and Pyschological and Behavioural Sciences.

The deadline for applications is November 1, 2014.

More information about the Scholarship as well as the application materials can be found online at www.cic.edu/DaviesJackson. If you have any questions or comments about the Davies-Jackson Scholarship, please contact Stephen Gibson, CIC’s director of programs, at sgibson@cic.nche.edu.
