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 Master's 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.


To apply for a scholarship you must first apply for admission for an eligible programme of study at the University of Edinburgh.

Eligible applicants should complete an online scholarship application.

All applications must be submitted no later than 4th March 2016.

Please note you will not be able to access the online application form unless you have applied for admission to the University of Edinburgh and have full EASE authentication.
