Scholarships' closing date fast approaching

19 February 2018

The School of Welsh’s Creative Minds Scholarships are worth £2,000 each and are available to prospective undergraduate students who have received an offer to study at the School in September 2018.

This is the fourth year in a row that the School has offered the scholarships. They reward applicants’ creativity and ask them to convey their personalities and their ideas in an original way.

The Creative Minds Scholarships were launched in 2015 to increase the amount of financial support that was available to the School’s students.

This year, four scholarships are on offer as the closing date nears. Entries should be received at the School of Welsh by 28 February 2018.

Dr Angharad Naylor, Admissions Tutor at the School of Welsh, said: We have received many entries or the scholarships already and look forward to receiving more before the closing date.

“In the past, the standard of entries has been excellent, making it particularly difficult to choose the winners. Each entry has been different and we have been delighted to read and appreciate them. We’ve received pieces of art, poems, presentations, articles, videos and songs. Anything is possible and if you’ve applied to study with us, make sure to get involved.”

There isn’t an application form to complete. Those wishing to enter should answer the following questions I as a creative a manner as possible: 1) Why do you want to study Welsh in Cardiff? 2) What makes you a special candidate? 3) Why should the School of Welsh admit you?

If you have an offer to study at the School of Welsh in September 2018, remember to apply for the Creative Minds Scholarships before 28 February 2018 (details on the website). Send your entry to the School’s office (School of Welsh, Cardiff University, Column Drive, Cardiff, CF10 3EU) or via email –
