Bucher-Fraser Scholarships

Nine scholarships available for taught master's programmes offered by the Reid School of Music. Each award is worth £3,000 and is tenable for one academic year.


The scholarship will be awarded to a student who is accepted for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate taught Masters programme of study within the Reid School of Music. To be eligible, applicants must have received an offer to study by the scholarship deadline.

Awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit, the Bucher-Fraser scholarship requires candidates to have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 honours degree at undergraduate level or the international equivalent.

However, the selection panel will also take into account financial circumstances to ensure that as far as possible financial need does not impede a university education.

Please note: This scholarship cannot be held alongside the Jean Kennoway Howells Scholarship.


This scholarship is now closed. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2016-2017 academic session.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application in May 2016.
