There's still time to apply for the Ralph Waggett MA Studentship in History, with the deadline of 4 June 2021

The Department recognises that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities are under-represented in our student body and in academia more generally, and we are proactively seeking ways to support students who self-identify as from such communities in their academic careers. To help address this under-representation, the Department therefore encourages applications to the Ralph Waggett MA Studentship from any student planning to enter the History Department’s 2021-22 MA programme who self-identifies as belonging to a Black or Asian ethnic group, as of mixed heritage, or otherwise as of a BAME background.

Eligibility criteria:

To be eligible for this studentship you must:

·       Self-identify as belonging to a Black or Asian ethnic group, as of mixed heritage, or otherwise as of a BAME background    

·       Meet the entry criteria for the MA in History

Benefits:

The Ralph Waggett MA Studentship in History is available thanks to a generous donation from our alumni community. The Studentship is available for one year full-time or two years part-time and offers the following financial support package:

1. A Studentship award of £6,000 (split over two years if studying the MA part-time)

2. MA fees paid in full (at Home Student fee level)

In addition, the Department may be able to contribute towards dissertation research funding.
