The History BA Undergraduate Scholarship

The Department of History is delighted to announce the History BA Undergraduate Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded each year to a student commencing their undergraduate studies in the Department of History at the University of York, who best meets the eligibility criteria for the scholarship.

The History BA Undergraduate Scholarship has been established to provide support to talented students who have the academic potential to study History at York and for whom a BA Honours degree in History (or a BA Combined Honours degree that includes History) would enable them to fulfil their educational and professional ambitions.

The History BA Undergraduate Scholarship 2020

The scholarship is open to applications from students commencing an undergraduate degree in the Department of History in September 2020. This includes students studying for a Combined Honours degree, providing that History is one of the subjects studied.

The scholarship is worth £3,000, paid in annual instalments of £1,000, for three years in total.

(If you are registered for a four-year degree, the scholarship is not paid in third year, which is usually the year abroad/placement component, and instead, the third instalment of £1,000 will be paid in the final year of study).
