History of Art


Departmental Bursary


Value: Up to £15k one-off payment, paid either as a stipend, full or partial tuition fees

Eligibility: All research students regardless of fee status

Application Deadline: 27th April 2020

The Departmental Bursary aims to enable postgraduate research students in the UCL History of Art Department to take up their offer of study at UCL, regardless of their financial situation, by relieving financial pressures for those in need. Up to two awards are available for the 2020/21 academic session.

How to apply

Home/EU candidates who wish to be considered for departmental funding should first apply to the AHRC scholarships via LAHP and later for the Departmental Bursary. The decisions over the departmental bursary will be taken after we have learned about the outcome of the LAHP studentship competition.

Students wishing to be considered for the Departmental Bursary should submit the following materials:

  • A copy of your research proposal (c 1500 words). This may be the same proposal submitted with the application for the programme, or an updated version
  • An updated CV
  • An informal letter indicating why you wish to be considered for the scholarship. The criterion for awarding the bursary is financial need and you will need to demonstrate this in the covering letter.

You must declare any other sources of funding to which you have also applied. 

Applications should be submitted by 27th April 2020. Applications received after this deadline cannot be considered. Any queries should be addressed to the Department's Research Tutor, Richard Taws (r.taws@ucl.ac.uk)

Materials should be submitted as a pdf document (please collate all materials in one file) to Eleanor Day (e.day@ucl.ac.uk) copying in Richard Taws (r.taws@ucl.ac.uk).
