Hyams Bursary for MSc in Information Science

We are pleased to share that a bursary of £3,500 is available for one MSc Information Science student.

This bursary is given in memory of Montagu Hyams, a pioneer of scientific publishing and the online industry, and founder of Derwent Publications Ltd., now part of Thomson Reuters.

Montagu (‘Monty’) Hyams was a research chemist who in the early 1950s began a service summarising new inventions. The business he founded grew into a leader in scientific information provision, best known for the database Derwent World Patents Index. A lifelong Londoner (1918-2013), his archive of correspondence and technical papers is also held by City University London.

The bursary will be awarded each year to one applicant for the MSc course in Information Science, and will be used to reduce the candidate’s fees. Preference will be given to applicants with scientific qualifications or experience, particularly in the chemical of pharmaceutical sciences, and/or specific interests in scientific information handling. Preference will also be given to applicants who are self-funding their studies. Home, EU and overseas applicants are equally eligible, as are applicants for full-time and part-time study.

Applications for the bursary should be made at the same time as an application for a place on the course.
