For 2016/17, the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland has allocated 11 Carnegie Cameron PG Bursaries to the University of Strachclyde with an individual value of up to £4000.
These Bursaries are awarded for the payment of tuition fees for one year full-time, or two year part-time Masters courses. Any Masters is eligible, other than an MPhil or similar programme undertaken solely by research, PG Diploma or Certificate. The Bursaries support PG Masters that will enhance students’ employability in their chosen field, develop (or supplement existing) specialist skills, thus bettering their career prospects. Candidates should be qualified and deserving, industrious and ambitious, and that they would derive particular benefit from a Masters, which they would be unlikely to attend without the award.
To be eligible, applicants must be: • Of Scottish birth OR • Be of Scottish extraction (have at least one parent born in Scotland) OR • Have received 3 full years of secondary, further and/or higher education in Scotland.
Candidates will be selected on the basis of their merit and promise, and financial need.
Applicants should first secure an offer of a place for a postgraduate taught programme at the University of Strachclyde.
The closing date for applications is 24 June 2016. Further details/application form are available at http://www.strath.ac.uk/studywithus/scholarships/carnegiecamerontaughtpostgraduatebursaries/
