Other Financial Support
As well as the major sources of funding, the following additional means of financial support are available for undergraduates at Magdalene:
Student Support Fund
The College has a Student Support Fund for Magdalene students who find themselves in unexpected financial difficulty after they start their courses.
Magdalene Teach First Bursary
Magdalene College offers a Teach First Bursary worth £1,000 per year, for final year undergraduates going into teaching though Teach First. The bursary may be awarded to one student or shared between several. In line with Magdalene’s link area priorities, applicants to Teach First are encouraged to nominate the North West (Merseyside and the Wirral) as their preferred location for teaching placements. However, Magdalene College will consider applications from all students enrolled in the Teach First programme.
College Prizes, Scholarships, and Exhibitions
The College awards College Scholarships to students who achieve first class results in tripos examinations in any year of their course. Especially strong performance may additionally be rewarded with the award of a College Prize. College Exhibitions recognise excellent exam performance that is just short of first class.
College Travel Awards
All students can apply for travel grants that typically permit students to travel overseas during the summer. Some of these schemes are academic-related, for instance for fieldwork, and there are some additional travel funds available for students studying certain subjects.
Organ Scholarships and Music Awards
Magdalene also participates in the inter-collegiate music awards schemes, offering Organ Scholarships, Choral Scholarships, and Instrumental Music Awards. Details of the schemes and how to apply can be found here.
The Lady Lincoln Fund provides a range of additional awards and bursaries each year in support of College musicians.
