“I just wanted to thank you for making the school affordable for those who couldn’t afford it. Having the tuition waiver really gave me the chance to attend this program. I have truly been moved by the experience. To be seen and encouraged has made a huge difference to how I approach my work. The peers in the program have turned into friends and allies. I hope to have a sustained relationship with the professors and peers I’ve met in the program.” - 2018 Participant

In 2018 we introduced two different types of bursary for the Critical Theory Summer School applicants: the International Bursary, and the Birkbeck Bursary.

Applications for all Bursary places have now closed. We regretfully cannot accept any late applications for Bursary places.

International Bursary Competition

The International Bursary covers the fees, return travel and accommodation for one international participant to attend the London Critical Theory Summer School. The Institute will book economy class return flights, rail tickets to and from the airport in London, and local student accommodation.

We can also put you in touch with our International Student Services department, who will be happy to offer advice on visas and any other documentation you require.

We particularly welcome applications from the Global South.

Birkbeck Bursary Competition

We are also able to offer 3 Birkbeck Bursaries to one Birkbeck student from each of the Schools of Arts, Law, and Social Science, History and Philosophy (SSHP). This will cover the fees for the Summer School.

Applicants for the Birkbeck Bursary should be registered as either a Masters or Research student at Birkbeck in July 2019.

The selection process is competitive and the respective School in which you are studying will choose the successful applicant.
