Dates and Deadlines


Herchel Smith Scholarships starting in September 2018 are open to members of Emmanuel College, whether currently resident or not, whose first degree (at Cambridge or elsewhere) was or will be completed between June 2013 and September 2018.

Application deadline

Applications are required to reach the Master's Secretary, no later than Saturday 21st October 2017. Candidates are required to name two or three referees, and to ask each of them to write a letter of support direct to the Master's Secretary to reach her by the same date. Alternatively, letters of support may be enclosed with the application; see the further Information for instructions in this case.


A shortlisting meeting will be held in November, and shortlisted candidates will be asked to attend for interview in late November or early December. The interview date is likely to be Tuesday 28th November 2017, but candidates should seek confirmation before making any definite arrangements.
