Museum Studies scholarships

Diversity Scholarships

We are delighted to announce that we have the following scholarships available for applicants wishing to commence their studies in Autumn 2020:

The School of Museum Studies is committed to supporting museums and galleries to increase the diversity of their staff. The aim of the Diversity Scholarships is to take positive action to encourage more UK-based individuals from underrepresented backgrounds to consider a museums and galleries sector career and apply for and participate in museum studies training with the School of Museum Studies.

Scholarships are open to those already working in museums, as well as new entrants, and can be used across our full-time and distance learning programmes. Each scholarship winner will receive a fee discount of £3,000. Scholarship winners must commence their studies in Autumn 2020.

The College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities is also offering a further ten scholarships for people from BAME communities.
