Funding and Scholarships

Master's Funding

The Birkbeck Women in Sport Scholarship is part of a wider initiative at Birkbeck to foster women’s participation in the sport industry. The Scholarship is generously funded by Birkbeck alumnus Tim Edwards and his partner Elizabeth Edwards. Elizabeth is a Director of Ipswich Town plc, a Trustee of the Ipswich Town Community Trust, as well as being the club Supporter Liaison Officer; Tim is an Associate Director of Ipswich Town FC. Together, they are co-founders of the Ipswich Town Heritage Society. They are passionate about increasing the number of women working in football and in sport more generally.

You can find out more about eligibility and the application process on the Women in Sport Scholarship funding page.

PhD Funding

In some years, Birkbeck is able to offer one or more full or partial studentships to potential PhD students. These provide successful candidates with payment of their PhD fees and, in some cases, a full stipend for living expenses. Availability of these studentships and their number vary from year to year. When studentships are available, details will be provided on the College's PhD funding page.
