The Thomas Linacre Studentships recognise outstanding individual contributions to the life of the College. Two studentships may be awarded annually. They are tenable for one year and carry a stipend of £500. These studentships have been made possible through a generous donation from Dr Peter Stern.

The Thomas Linacre Studentships will be awarded only when, in the view of the Governing Body, a student has made an individual contribution to College life sufficiently outstanding to merit this recognition: the Studentships will not necessarily be awarded every year.
