Deferment of Awards

An applicant awarded a Scholarship may apply for the award to be deferred, giving good reasons (such as a late opportunity to take a worthwhile academic course). If satisfied as to those reasons, the Scholarships Committee may grant such deferment as it considers appropriate. Each year, any funds deferred by award winners are re-distributed between Scholarship and Exhibition winners as the Chairman of the Scholarships Committee sees fit.

The Scholarships Committee will not usually give consent to defer CPE, Internship or Sir Joseph Priestly awards. Candidates who have been obliged to decline or return such an award may, however, re-apply for a similar award at the appropriate time, and that application will be considered on its merits.
