York is celebrating in a big way in 2012. It is 800 years since the city was granted a Royal Charter by King John in 1212, allowing York to take charge of its own affairs by electing a council, creating the post of mayor, and giving a voice to its people. In celebration the Department of Archaeology is offering a significant number of commemorative York800 scholarships to award talented overseas scholars helping support their undergraduate study at York.
The award covers £800 per term to defray fees, and a further £800 towards costs, a total of £3,200 per year for each of the three years of their degree. For further details and the application procedure please go to the following page, York 800 scholarships
