Strathcona Memorial Fellowships in Transportation
Hundred Dollars each, are offered annually for advanced work in Transportation, with special reference to the construction, equipment, and operation of railroads, and other engineering problems connected with the efficient transportation of passengers and freight, as well as the financial and legislative questions involved. Transportation by water, highways, or airways, and the appropriate apparatus involved, and also other general aspects of the broad field of transportation, embracing its legal and economic phases, will be included in the lists of subjects which the Fellows may select for investigation and study. The holder of a Fellowship must be a man who has obtained his first degree from an institution of high standing. The primary purpose of the Fellowship is to promote advanced work, especially research; but it is possible to combine such work with the attainment of an advanced degree. In making the award, preference is shown, in accordance with the will of Lord Strathcona, to such persons or to the sons of such persons as have been, for at least two years, connected in some manner with the railways of the Northwest.
Applications for these Fellowships should be addressed to the Dean of the Graduate School of Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, before March 1, on blanks which may be obtained from him. Applicants must submit with their application a brief biography, a statement giving the reasons for desiring to pursue advanced work, and the subject contemplated for special study, and a certified record of their previous courses of study in college or technical school, and their standing therein. They should also submit testimonials bearing upon their qualifications. A recent photograph of the applicant is requested.
Various courses of study relating to transportation along engineering, economic, and legal lines are now offered by Yale University. For greater particularity the applicant is referred to the Catalogue of the Yale University Graduate School, and especially to details found under the following groups and courses of study, viz.: Social and Political Science; Government and Public Law; Civil Engineering; Electrical Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Engineering Mechanics. The Strathcona Memorial Fellows will be entitled to pursue investigation in any of these aspects of transportation in which the University offers competent guidance and supervision.
