Posted on 19 January 2015

Fully-funded and fee-waiver opportunities for two of our Master’s programmes.

19-01-2015 Masters Scholarships

The Department of Archaeology is pleased to announce a series of scholarship opportunities for our Digital Heritage and Conservation Studies (Historic Buildings) Master’s degrees, made possible by the AHRC-funded White Rose College of Arts and Humanities.

For the first time since its initiation in 2010, the MSc in Digital Heritage is offering a fully-funded scholarship for students on full-time study. This includes both fee waiver and stipend (the latter amount to be defined by RCUK, but likely a minimum of £13,863), open to UK residents or to EU students who have been resident in the UK for three years, as defined by RCUK guidelines

Additionally, two fee-waiver scholarships are available for full-time study on either the MSc in Digital Heritage or the MA in Conservation Studies (Historic Buildings). These opportunities cover tuition for the programmes and are open to students internationally, although the fee-waiver is at the Home/EU fee rate only. 

Further information on eligibility and application procedures is detailed below. The deadline is 8 May 2015. Prior to this deadline, students must have applied to and been offered a conditional place on either the Digital Heritage or Conservation Studies (Historic Buildings) programmes to be considered for the scholarships.
