We are delighted to announce a scholarship for the Msc/Mlitt in Gender studies (Applied), funded by the family of our much-loved and much-missed colleague Dr Dee Amy-Chinn.
Dee, a lecturer in the Division of Communication, Media and Culture at the University of Stirling, was instrumental in founding the Gender Studies MSc/MLitt programme. Dee died of bowel cancer in December 2015 and a donation was made from her family to fund these scholarships. Dee was the first in her family to go to university. She attended Lancaster University and later, mid-career, studied at Birkbeck University of London for her MA and MSc while continuing to work full time. She went on to gain a scholarship to do her PhD. Dee’s academic interests were focussed broadly on gender and sexuality in the media and public sphere. She was passionate about openness and fair treatment for all.
These scholarships are to support students with diverse life experiences which have marked their journey to postgraduate study. Closing date for applications for students commencing study is Friday 3 July 2020.
Successful candidates will be notified of their award in early August.
