Candidates applying for a master’s scholarship from The Bartlett Promise must have received an offer from one of The Bartlett schools to study a master’s programme in 2022/23. You do not need to have accepted the offer.
The offer may be unconditional (the applicant has met all the requirements to join the programme) or conditional (i.e. the offer is conditional on the applicant meeting key requirements such as a 2.1 grade in their undergraduate programme). If a shortlisted candidate has a conditional offer, they will need to confirm that they have met the conditions required by 30 July 2022 so that they can be considered for an award.
As part of the application process, shortlisted candidates will be asked to engage in a one-to-one dialogue with the Windsor Fellowship5 to discuss anything else which you feel might support your application. This will not include describing or detailing your academic abilities as these will be assessed by your Bartlett School. The dialogues will be conducted electronically via an appropriate method agreed between the Windsor Fellowship and the applicant e.g. telephone, Zoom etc. They will be scheduled by the Windsor Fellowship 20 to 30 June 2022.
5 The Windsor Fellowship is supporting The Bartlett in conducting the one-to-one dialogues that form part of the application process. The Bartlett will share the data of applicants with the Windsor Fellowship for the purposes of conducting these dialogues. By submitting your application you agree to The Bartlett sharing your information with the Windsor Fellowship.
The selection panel will assess your application based on information provided on your scholarship application form and the information you provide in your one-to-one dialogue with the Windsor Fellowship. Assessment of applications will be made in relation to the eligibility criteria.
