DescriptionHarrison reports that the field of Mackinnon Scholarship competitors is not currently large, but the deadline for applications is 22 June. He encloses a copy of the regulations, which state that the student may not undertake other work without the sanction of Council, so the chances of a candidate holding a demonstrator's post being successful would depend on the circumstances of the individual.
