The Kathryn M. Morrison Scholarship in Political Studies
The Kathryn M. Morrison Scholarship in Political Studies will recognize a student entering their first year of post-secondary education from Newfoundland and Labrador who displays an exceptional interest in politics and public policy, and an ability to articulate critical thinking and analysis in a political context. Established to recognize the contributions of Kate Morrison, a passionate lawyer, public servant and advocate for social justice, the scholarship aims to encourage the study and practice of politics and public service. The timing of this scholarship is crucial. Newfoundland and Labrador is facing challenges from income inequality to outmigration, and we expect governments to respond with concrete public policy. Yet, at the same time, negative perceptions of politicians and policy-makers have led so many to disengage.

The Morrison Scholarship aims to change that. See website for deadlines and other information.

Rothermere Foundation Fellowships
These Fellowships, the gift of the first Chancellor of the University, have been established to aid and encourage students who have taken their first degree at this University to pursue their studies for the British higher degree at a university of their choice in the United Kingdom. It is not intended that students who have obtained most of their education in Britain be eligible for a Fellowship. Awards are made by the Rothermere Fellowships Trust, on the recommendation of the President of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
The conditions of the award are as follows:
Candidates shall have completed a bachelor’s degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland and have completed or be about to complete a master’s degree either at Memorial University of Newfoundland or at another university in North America.
Fellowships will be awarded only to candidates who are proceeding to the United Kingdom to work for a British higher degree. Fellowships will not be awarded to candidates who wish to extend their stay in Britain to obtain a further British higher degree. Persons who are full-time members of a faculty of Memorial University of Newfoundland are not eligible for a Rothermere Fellowship.
The awards will be restricted to a maximum tenure of three years or the period requested in the candidate’s application, whichever is the lesser. Continuation beyond the first year will depend on certification of competence and satisfactory progress.
Candidates must accept and complete the term of years for which the Fellowship has been awarded unless the requirements for the qualifications for which the Fellowship was awarded have been completed before the term expires. No interruption of tenure, postponement of the date of commencement of the Fellowship, or transfer of the Fellowship to a different field of study once the tenureship has begun will be permitted.
- One Fellowship is usually awarded each year.
The Trust will pay a stipend of £17,300 per annum. The stipend is expected to cover living expenses. The value of the stipend is not usually negotiable, but is reviewed periodically by the Rothermere Foundation. The stipend will be credited to the Fellow’s UK bank account in quarterly instalments. The quarterly instalments will be paid in October, January, April and July; the timing of the instalments is not usually negotiable.
The Trust will pay tuition fees for the higher degree programme on which the Fellow is registered, directly to the university concerned upon receipt of an invoice.
The Trust will pay for a return airfare, economy class, for Fellows from Newfoundland and Labrador to England, and back to Newfoundland in each year of their Fellowship. Flights must be economy return (or a set of two economy one-way flights only where the total cost is less than that of an economy return fare). The cost of the flights will be reimbursed by a cheque raised by the Rothermere Foundation on production of proof of purchase. Fellows are advised that the refund process may take several weeks to complete, allowing time for signature of the cheque by the relevant Trustees. The Trust will reimburse the air fare in the final year of award, on the proviso that the student must use the return portion to travel back to Newfoundland within two months of completing their Fellowship.
- Completed applications must be submitted in duplicate to this office before the 30th of November and must be accompanied by the following documentation, also in duplicate:
an official transcript of marks from Memorial University of Newfoundland and from any other university attended;
a letter of recommendation from the dean of the faculty or school in which the applicant was registered as an undergraduate at Memorial University of Newfoundland;
