Museum Studies scholarships
We are delighted to announce that we have a range of Scholarships available for applicants wishing to commence their studies in Autumn 2019:
- 4 Diversity Scholarships
- 2 Open Scholarships
- 3 Commonwealth Scholarship Commission Distance Learning Scholarships
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 2019.
Our Open Scholarships are open to all applicants across our campus-based and distance learning programmes. The two scholarship winners will receive a fee discount of £3,000. Students must commence their studies in Autumn 2019.
Commonwealth Scholarships are available to students from specific Commonwealth countries applying to study for an MA/MSc in Heritage and Interpretation by distance learning commencing in October 2019. The scholarship covers course fees, course materials and attendance/travel for any formal study events. Exact details to be confirmed.
