Wallace Studentships for Masters programmes in the History of Art Department

  • fees and a contributory stipend for one full-time place, starting October 2017

In 2016, the History of Art department at Birkbeck was delighted to announce a three-year series of studentships for its Masters programmes, 2016-2019. These studentships are thanks to the generosity of Graham and Denise Wallace, who are kindly supporting our MAs in History of Art, History of Art with Photography, and Museum Cultures. This in honour of the History of Art department's upcoming Anniversary, celebrating 50 years of widening access to the discipline.

In 2017-18, we will have one non-repayable studentship available for a full-time student, covering fees and a contributory stipend of £2000 pa.

You must be a Home/EU student to apply for this studentship. It will be allocated on two criteria. The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate both academic excellence, and financial need. Priority will be given to those who can show strong promise as a Masters student, but who would be unable to progress to study at that level without financial support. Please see below for the income criteria.

Applications should be made using the Wallace MA Studentship application form, which must be completed in addition to the online application process for the MA programme itself. If you are wishing to apply for this studentship, and have not yet applied to your chosen MA course, you can submit both applications at the same time, by the deadline of Sunday 30th April 2017. Please note that the bursary will only be awarded to a student who has already been accepted onto the MA History of Art, MA History of Art with Photography, or MA Museum Cultures for the coming academic year.

Applications should be sent to Susan El-Ghoraiby, s.el-ghoraiby@bbk.ac.uk, History of Art Department, Birkbeck College, 43 Gordon Square, London. WC1H 0PD

A fresh call will be made for  2018-19 studentships in early 2018.
