Scholarships and Student Funding

Jean Kennoway Howells Scholarship

One scholarship available for taught masters programmes offered by the Reid School of Music.


The award is worth £9,000 and is tenable for one academic year.


The scholarship will be awarded to students who have applied for admission on a full-time basis for a postgraduate taught Masters programme of study within the Reid School of Music commencing in the 2018-2019 academic year. To be eligible, applicants must have received an offer to study by the scholarship deadline.

Awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit, the Jean Kennoway Howells 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.

If wishing to commence a new programme of study in September 2018 you must ensure that you have fully completed and submitted your Masters programme application for admission using the University's online system:

Applicants must have submitted their fully completed Masters programme application in order to be considered for scholarship funding.

Please note: This scholarship cannot be held alongside the Bucher-Fraser Scholarship.


Applications for this scholarship are no longer being accepted for 2018-2019 as the deadline has now passed.

Please note: the Personal Statement for your scholarship application should clearly state why you are applying for this scholarship, why you feel your application should be considered and what benefit the scholarship will have for your studies.  We are also looking for your thoughts on how you might contribute to the postgraduate community within ECA whilst on programme.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of April/early May 2018.
