Please note that all information for this scholarship was valid for 2017-2018 applications only. Information below is available for reference only. We’ll confirm scholarships for 2018-2019 applicants from September 2018 onwards.
This scheme offers a bursary of £600 (£300 a year for part-time students) against fees for the MSc/MLitt in Gender Studies (Applied). To be eligible, applicants should be working in a paid or voluntary capacity with one of our community partners at the time of application.
Our community partners for 2018-19 are Scottish Women's Aid, Forth Valley Rape Crisis, Glasgow Women's Library, Women's Support Project, LEAP Sports, Zero Tolerance and Engender and Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
Please note that applicants are not eligible to accept both the Gender Studies Bursary and a University of Stirling Postgraduate Merit Scholarship (the University of Stirling is offering any UK or European Union student with a First Class Honours degree (or equivalent) a £2,000 scholarship to study full-time on any taught Masters course or £1,000 for part-time study.)
Applicants simply need to email the Programme Director (Karen.Boyle@stir.ac.uk) to indicate their intention to apply and note that they would like to be considered for the bursary as part of their personal statement in their application. Applicants should also provide a reference from a colleague in the partner organisation as part of their application.
