School of History, Classics and Archaeology Masters Scholarships

The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for its Masters Scholarships (taught or research) for 2017-2018 entry.

The School will award two Edinburgh Scholarships, one Gray Scholarship and two Masters awards. These awards are open to outstanding students beginning their masters studies in the 2017-18 academic year (commencing September 2017).

Award

The Edinburgh Scholarships and the Gray Scholarship will cover the tuition fees  at the Home/EU rate for the chosen programme of study. Successful Overseas applicants will be liable for the difference between the Home/EU and Overseas fees rates.

The Masters Studentships will provide a stipend of £7,000 per annum, payable in monthly instalments. Awardees are responsible for paying their tuition fees, which are not covered as part of this award, to the University.

Applicants part-time and distance-learning Masters programmes are eligible to apply for these awards (any award made would be paid pro-rata).

Criteria

The Edinburgh and Gray Scholarships and the Masters Studentships will be awarded on academic merit and the potential to excel at the chosen programme of study.
