French and Francophone Studies

Postgraduate scholarships

In addition to the College scholarships, students undertaking postgraduate study in French can apply for two dedicated awards.

The Muriel Smith Scholarship

Awarded annually to suitably qualified female Scots on a programme of postgraduate study involving the French or Spanish languages as spoken in Europe. Candidates who have been resident in Scotland for at least four years as well as candidates of Scottish parentage are eligible. Language includes all cultural uses of language.

An invitation to apply will be sent to all on programme students during the academic year.

The John Orr Research Award

The award is tenable by postgraduate students who are either graduates of the University of Edinburgh or registered as candidates for an Intermediate or Higher degree in the University of Edinburgh and may be shared between two or more students.

The award is made for one, two or three years. Applicants must undertake research "in any Romance Literature, Language or Dialect". Preference will be given to those working in Language studies. Applicants must normally be graduates of not more than five years' standing.
