The Trustees of the Brian Large Bursary Fund are offering up to four Brian Large Masters Bursaries of £6,500 each for competitive application from British universities running a full time transport master's course for the academic year 2018/19.

The purpose of a Brian Large Master's Bursary is to enable students who have insufficient other funds to study full time without the need to take paid employment during normal university study hours, to undertake their selected course.

The award of a Brian Large Bursary should be central to their ability to study full time for a transport Masters.

Eligibility criteria

Residency Since it is the aim of the Brian Large Bursary Fund to enrich the supply of transport planning professionals within the United Kingdom, candidates are required to be British or to have long term UK residential rights and intentions.
Academic criteria

While no minimum level of first degree is required, the Trustees expect young graduates to have at least a 2.2, preferably a 2.1. However, they are willing to relax that requirement for outstanding mature students.

The Trustees reserve the right to withdraw any outstanding part of the Bursary should the report indicate unsatisfactory progress. They must be advised by the University should the Bursar withdraw from or fail to attend the course, or be considered no longer suitable for any reason.
