The Charles Mackie Scholarship
The School of History, Classics and Archaeology is offering the Charles Mackie Scholarship to students progressing from Undergraduate to Postgraduate Study within the School, commencing study in the 2023-2024 academic year.
This scholarship was introduced in 2019 to mark the 300th anniversary of the appointment of Charles Mackie, Professor of Universal History in 1719. The first such Chair in Scotland and a true polyhistor, Mackie taught a type of ‘world history’ and both his courses as well as his research interests were very broad. Among his pupils was William Robertson, the famous Enlightenment historian, and University Principal, after whom the School’s building is named.
The Charles Mackie Scholarship is for students progressing from an undergraduate degree programme in a History, Classics or Archaeology discipline at the University of Edinburgh to Masters study in the School. It will consist of tuition fees at the Home rate. Successful overseas applicants will be liable for the difference between the Home and Overseas fees rates.
This award is open to any postgraduate Masters programme offered by the School. Applicants for part-time and distance-learning Masters programmes are eligible to apply for this award (any award made would be paid pro-rata).
- Awards will be made on academic merit and the potential to excel at the chosen programme of study.
- As this award is designed specifically to encourage the School’s undergraduate cohort to progress to Masters study within the School, applicants must be current final year undergraduates studying a History, Classics or Archaeology discipline at the University of Edinburgh on course to receive a 2.1 or first-class honours undergraduate degree.
Applications are no longer being accepted for this scholarship as the 28th of February 2023 deadline has now passed.
You must read the School of History, Classics and Archaeology webpage ahead of applying for the scholarship to ensure that you are able to complete the required steps to apply ahead of the deadlines (including the earlier degree programme application deadline).
