The Horobin Award

You are here

The Horobin Award will meet course fees, up to a maximum of £20,000, for a female student following a one-year graduate course. Eligibility is on the grounds of both academic merit, and sporting achievement in rowing, and is very generously funded by a donor.

Details of the 2017-18 Award are available here.

Our Horobin Award-holders

In 2016-17 the Award was made to Ms Alice White.

In 2015-16 the Award was made to Ms Caroline Habjan, studying for an MPhil in Medical Sciences. Caroline is working towards uncovering therapeutic options for patients with neurodegenerative diseases.

The first Horobin Award was made in 2014-15 to Ms Daphne Martschenko.  Daphne studied for an MPhil in Politics, Development and Democratic Education as a member of Homerton, and continued to a PhD at Magdalene College. 

She competed for Cambridge in the 2015 Boat Race – the first year that the women’s boats competed on the Championship Course on the same day as the men’s race.

“The Horobin Award has afforded me the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment with world class instructors, a rich cultural history and diversity, and many avenues for personal discovery. Homerton College has provided me with boundless social and intellectual support, which has helped me achieve academically and athletically, while making this journey both enjoyable and unforgettable. I am so thankful for this award and this opportunity, and I am very excited by the fact that other women will be given this opportunity in the future!”

John Horobin

Women’s sport is part of Homerton’s tradition.  The award is named after John Horobin, Principal of Homerton from 1889-1902, who first established a women’s rowing club at Homerton.  It was also Horobin who moved Homerton College from Homerton High Street, London, to Cambridge in 1894.
