Graduate Study: Prize Scholars

Merton is very proud of the achievements of all of its graduate members. It is no easy task for the College’s Graduate Committee to select four research students in the later years of their degrees as Prize Scholars. This award is reserved for those of the highest academic distinction and brings the right to dine free of charge on High Table each week and a cash sum of £500.
