Applications now open for two postgraduate scholarships for 2017/2018

The School is offering two one-year scholarships for any postgraduate Masters or Research degree within the disciplines of Ancient History, Archaeology, Conservation or History for the forthcoming academic year.

Scholarship criteria requires applicants to have accepted Cardiff as their firm choice institution or be registered on a full-time postgraduate taught or research course by no later than 5 May 2017. Applicants must also either be self-funding, or intend to be a self-funding student.

Applications should be emailed to the School using the Enriques application form, under the subject line Henriques Scholarship Application. Successful applicants will be notified within two working weeks of the application deadline. The deadline is 5 May 2017, 17:00.

Professor Ursula Henriques (1914 – 2008) was a member of staff in the Department of History and Welsh History, University College Cardiff for more than 20 years until her departure in 1981. Working in both medieval and modern history, her major works include Theory of Religious Toleration in England, 1787-1833 (1961) and Before the Welfare State: Social Administration in Early Industrial Britain (1979).

Now in its 15th year, the legacy rotates annually between the Schools of History, Archaeology and Religion, Modern Languages and English, Communication and Philosophy thanks to the original gift of £100,000.
