The Douton Scholarship

The Douton Scholarship was established in 1934 by the Will of the late Mrs A.H.M. Douton, widow of Revd. G.W. Douton (KC 1872), with a gift of £1,161. The will was explicit in creating a trust, the income of which was to provide an entrance or senior scholarship or exhibition in Classics.

Revised in 2020, this award is now a graduate studentship to support MPhil students in Classics.


How to Apply

All applicants to the University of Cambridge to study an MPhil in Classics are considered for this scholarship. Any candidate offered the scholarship who has not applied to King’s must be willing to transfer to King’s to take up the award.
