Christopher Mead Armitage and Pauline Brooks Armitage Scholarship for Visiting Students

This scholarship is available for a student from UNC-Chapel Hill to study at St Edmund Hall as a Visiting Student for Michaelmas Term (October to December) and covers all tuition fees, accommodation and food. Travel and entertainment costs are not included. Students are invited to extend their studies for the whole year (i.e. pay for the second and third terms themselves) if they are able.

The scholarship is restricted to students studying any Arts/Humanities discipline, and preference may be given to English majors. Applications are handled by the Year Abroad Office at UNC.

This scholarship was established in recognition of alumnus Christopher Armitage (1950, English) and the work he has done to foster links between the Hall and UNC-Chapel Hill yearly since 1980.

Mingos Charter Scholarship Fund

The Mingos Charter Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 through donations from a number of St Edmund Hall alumni based in the United States, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the granting of the Hall’s Royal Charter and to acknowledge the contribution of a former Principal of St Edmund Hall, Professor Michael Mingos. The scholarship is designed to assist United States students who are already in receipt of public funding, but might require further financial assistance in order to take up a place as a Visiting Student at St Edmund Hall. The College proposes to make awards of £1,000 per term to each eligible student who is offered a Visiting Student place.

No separate application for the Scholarship Fund is required at this stage: United States applicants to the College’s Visiting Student programme will be assessed for eligibility after the programme application deadline has passed, with a view to communicating decisions in time for students to confirm acceptance of their offer of a place.
