History MA Scholarships

The Department of History is pleased to offer two £9,000 scholarships for students starting our History MA programmes in September 2018.

Award details: each award is worth £9,000 and can be used towards fees and/or living expenses.

Eligibility: these awards are open to UK, EU and international applicants who are applying to study either full-time or part-time. You need to have applied to a History MA programme for entry in September 2018 to be eligible to apply to this funding scheme. This application will be considered alongside the references and transcript from your course application. Awards will be made on academic merit.

Apply now

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their scholarship application early July 2018.

Home and EU applicants – please note that the outcomes of the Sheffield Postgraduate Scholarships (SPS) will be taken into account and where applicants are successful in the SPS scheme that outcome will supersede the application to this scheme. It is not possible to hold both a scholarship from the SPS scheme and a History MA Scholarship.

Deadline: 5pm, Friday 15 June 2018.
