Funding opportunities

Find out about funding opportunities within the School and the University.

There are a number of funding opportunities available to help support you with your studies, most of which are covered on the University's Scholarships and Student Funding site, linked to below. These opportunities tend to depend on what subject you are planning on studying and where you are from. Some scholarships are awarded on the basis of your academic performance. While completing your degree, funding opportunities can become available depending upon the year of your study.

Some specific funding opportunities, such as the Robertson International Scholarship, are made available directly through the School of History, Classics & Archaeology. You can learn more about these below.

Robertson International Scholarship

Robertson scholarships amount to £1,000 and are available to new overseas students commencing their studies at the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. 

Archaeology Vacation Grant

For Archaeology students within the School, an Archaeology Vacation Grant can be particularly beneficial; this funding is awarded to students carrying out fieldwork at the end of their first year, or as part of the Archaeological Fieldwork option course in year four. Further information can be accessed on the 3 week Fieldwork Learn page, or if you are completing optional Fieldwork in order to take Archaeological Fieldwork course in 4th year, please email Claire.Brown-2@ed.ac.uk.
