FITZ AWARDS FOR SPORTS (undergraduate & graduate)

Rodney Fitzgerald (1942), or Fitz, was a senior Lloyds insurance broker in the City of London and a sportsman all his life. Always fond of Pembroke and keen to encourage excellence in sport, he left a sizeable bequest to the College on his death in 2012 to provide funding for students to reward sporting achievement.

Blue / Half Blue

  • Students at Pembroke awarded a Blue or Half Blue by the University Blues Committee will receive  £150 for a Blue and £100 for a Half Blue.

College Colours

  • Each year the Captains of Pembroke's sports teams nominate typically two or three leading players of their choice from their teams, with a particular focus on those in their final year of study, to receive 'College Colours'. Recipents also receive £25.

Sportsperson of the Year

  • The Sportsperson of the Year award is presented annually. The recipient is selected in consultation with the JCR and MCR and will be awarded £250.

Fitz Awards

  • To be eligible for a Fitz Award, students should be taking part in a sport at a high level, typically be at University level or above.

  • Students must be able to demonstrate that the expense of taking part in their sport is significant, and particular account will be taken of cases of financial hardship.

  • Awards will be made to compensate for the cost of equipment, subscriptions, accommodation, travel expenses, etc.

  • The minimum award will be £100 and although there is no official maximum it is unlikely that awards will exceed £500.

For undergraduates and gradutes 

  • The College has created two Vocal Scholarships awarded each year to qualified students studying any subject (not just Music), whether graduate or undergraduate.

  • Vocal Scholars are entitled to 18 free lessons from Nicola Harrison, Tutor in Singing and Interpretation. The lessons entail full voice training with a strong bias for interpretation and performance.

  • These scholarships were created to attract singers to Pembroke. They differ from choral scholarships in that they do not entail any attachment to choral duties and are entirely for voice training.
