They may be called upon to pass an entrance examination at the College in order to show that they possess such literary knowledge as to render it possible for them to follow the courses with advantage. Whilst under examination or instruction they will receive an allowance at the rate of 258. per week, and third class railway fare for one journey to and fro between the home of the teacher or student and the Royal College of Science. Should a Science Teacher in training be required to assist in teaching in the Royal College of Science, he will receive a weekly payment of 58. (see Conditions on p. 111). Candidates for these Studentships

in Training must send in Form 400 before the 10th June, and Form 1019 before the 1st July. The condensed prospectus of the Royal College of Science will be found at p. 113. (See also No. 302, p. 131.)

are renewable from term to term, but are only renewable provided that the attendance and progress of the Student are entirely satisfactory. In no case will they be paid for more than five years. Applications for renewals must be supported by the recommendation of the Head Master on Form

488A. NOTE.--The works to be submitted

by a candidate must be carefully selected by him to show his proficiency in the more advanced branches of Art, in subjects beyond those required for the Art Master's Certificate, Group I. They should consist of Drawings, Paintings, and Models from the Antique and the Life, Designs and Working Drawings for Ornament, Decoration and Architecture and Ornamental and Architectural Measured Studies, including full-sized mouldings : not more than three works in each of these divisions may be submitted.

These Scholarships, which are intended to enable Students to continue their regular course of instruction in a School of Art, date from the 1st October in each year, and are tenable for one year in the School of Art only where they have been
