FOUR NEW MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2013 ENTRY
UCL is offering four Provost’s studentships to UK/EU students accepted for its MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (MARS) for entry in 2013. The scholarships comprise the full £8,250 EU/UK MA fee plus a stipend of £11,940. The MARS degree offers an intensive one-year technical training in palaeography, diplomatic, medieval and renaissance vernaculars and their literatures and Latin as well as other skills and instruction needed for higher research in the field. Applicants must have applied for the MARS MA by February 8th 2013 (DATE EXTENDED). Shortlisted candidates will be selected on grounds of academic excellence and asked, normally, to attend an interview. Candidates’ interests may fall in in any field(s) supported by MARS. Applicants may apply for these awards in parallel to other external or UCL-supported funding sources, but must specify they wish to be considered for the ‘Provost’s Studentships’ in their application to the MARS MA. Interviews for shortlisted candidates will be held on 27th March 2013.
For further details contact the Degree Tutor, John Sabapathy.
Carol Chattaway Medieval History Scholarship
In addition the History Department offers funding in the form of the Chattaway Medieval Scholarship. This annual scholarship is intended for an outstanding postgraduate scholar working in the field of Medieval History with a preference given to mature students and/or women. The scholarship is worth £2500. Those who wish to be considered should indicate this in their application to the MARS MA.
UCL AHRC Scholarships
MARS is an
interdisciplinary programme of study bringing together courses from various
departments in UCL’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities and its Faculty of Social
and Historical Sciences. AHRC Masters funding may come from a number of departments depending on applicants' fields of expertise, but in practice applicants need not worry too much about this. The Degree Tutor will direct eligible applications to the appropriate AHRC competition within UCL once a place on the MA has been offered and, if shortlisted, the departments may contact them for an interview within the relevant competition. 4th February 2013 is the deadline for receipt of applications which will be considered for these awards.
They are welcome to contact the MARS Degree Tutor to discuss this. The following details may help
applicants understand the rationale behind the Degree Tutor's decision.
Usually the Degree Tutor will direct applications to the department in which they intend, according to their personal statement in their UCL application, to take most of their degree, calculated according to the number of credits. Their disciplinary background will also play a role. It is therefore important that applicants state which courses they hope to take on the MARS degree. The credit and home departments of each course are listed under the Courses pages. For the purposes of this calculation, Latin courses, a Reading-Knowledge of an Approved Modern Foreign Language and courses taken outside of UCL count as 0. (This is because applicants cannot request funding for the MARS degree through the centres or departments offering these courses.) The dissertation is always 60 credits, and counts as a course of the department where it is supervised. Candidates may indicate the general field in which they expect to conduct their dissertation.
