- Bartlett travel awards and scholarships
In previous years, The Bartlett Faculty Travel Awards and Scholarships have supported Bartlett undergraduate students to undertake independent travel to another country.
This year, given the ongoing Covid-19 travel restrictions and differing rates of vaccination, we will be funding students to submit creative contributions focusing on their local area instead.
Students can respond to this prompt in any way they wish, and contributions could cover questions such as:
- What inspires you in your local built environment?
- How have you seen or experienced your local area differently in the last 12 months?
- What challenges have you noticed in your local built or natural environment?
Submissions can take any format, within the following guidelines:
Written – max. 500 words, typed in MS Word
Photo essays – photos in original high resolution, in JPEG or PDF
Films – shot in landscape and uploaded to YouTube or another hosting platform, or if you want to send a file, MPEG, MP4 and MOV are fine
Audio – MP3 or MP4 files
Please note, submissions may be published on The Bartlett's website or social channels. Successful applicants can opt out of being featured on The Bartlett web and social channels if they prefer.
The awards are not intended to subsidise study related expenditure, or relate to a student’s programme of study or coursework.
We will reward each submission with £50, providing it is of a good standard.
Who can apply?
All undergraduate students registered on undergraduate programmes of study in the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment are eligible to apply.
Applicants should read the guidelines and send their submission, along with the application form cover letter, by email to Ian Lewis (email@example.com). The deadline for submissions is Friday 11 June.
If you have any queries about the Bartlett Travel Awards please contact Tom McMahon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Bartlett Travel Awards
The Bartlett Promise Scholarship
The Bartlett Promise is a long-term project to attract students from a broader range of backgrounds to tackle the lack of diversity in the built environment. The scholarships are open to UK domiciled students with home fee status from underrepresented backgrounds pursing a undergraduate, master’s or PhD programme at The Bartlett. The scholarships will cover students’ fees and provide a stipend for living and study costs for the duration of their degree.
Bartlett Doctoral funding
- Bartlett Student Conference Fund
The principal aim of this fund is to encourage MPhil/PhD students to present their research at international conferences.
- Bartlett Doctoral Initiative Fund
This fund has two principal aims:
- To support and encourage collaboration between schools and initiatives of The Bartlett in the form of thematically-focused initiatives that benefit MPhil/PhD students. These initiatives may be pedagogical or skills training related in purpose or aimed at assisting MPhil/PhD students in academic networking and career development.
- To assist MPhil/PhD in deriving maximum benefit from their studies at UCL and to foster opportunity for interdepartmental and inter-faculty MPhil/PhD student activities.
- Bartlett External Training Fund
This fund aims to provide MPhil/PhD students with additional opportunities to undertake training, essential to their research, not available through the UCL Doctoral Skills Development Programme.
- Bartlett Extenuating Circumstances Fund
This fund aims to provide financial support where the MPhil/PhD student’s original approved programme is no longer viable due to adverse unforeseeable circumstances, when sufficient funds are unavailable from other sources to cover increased costs.
In light of UCL travel restrictions and UK Government advice, this fund is closed until conditions allow it to reopen. In the meantime, students are advised to refer to the UCL Emergency Assistance Grant.
