Three of the 20 honor graduates of British Universities who were awarded Commonwealth Fellowships for study in colleges and universities of the United States will come to Harvard next fall to take up graduate work, it was made known last night by the American representative of the Fund in New York. The selection of students was made in London by the Committee of Award from a group of 178 applicants from 26 universities in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and includes three women students.
The winners of the fellowships who will be in residence at the University next year are: Frank P. Chambers of Clare College, Cambridge University, who will study in the School of Architecture; Martin A. Peacock of Glasgow University Scotland, who will continue his work in geology; and J. F. Whelan of University College. Cork, who will study in the field of literature. Under the provisions of the Commonwealth Fund, which was established in 1918 by the late Mrs. Stephen V. Harkness, the recipients of the awards will receive on the average of $3000 a year for study in this country and for extended travel in the United States during their vacations. The main purpose of the Fund is to establish a better international understanding between the United States and Great Britain.
The number of applications for the fellowships, which correspond in some measure to the Rhodes Scholarships offered each year to students in American institutions, was 38 less than were turned in last year. Most of the new appointees, besides being honor students are interested in some form of athletics. The following sports appear on their applications blanks: football, tennis, golf, water polo, Badminton, which is a variety of British football; and on the blanks of the feminine competitors, punting, dancing and hiking were also named.
