We reserve the right to extend scholarship deadlines.

Before you apply

Here you will find information about funding opportunities available for postgraduate study in the School of Social and Political Science, as well as Research Council awards, and it includes a section on important information and recommendations to review prior to submitting your applications. We consider this section to be essential reading. It contains important information about the School's scholarship application process and will also help you assess whether you are likely to be short-listed in applying to certain scholarships, where the School of Social and Political Science plays a part in making awards.

In the field of social and political science, most funding is oriented towards doctoral programmes. However, the UK Economic and Social Research Council provides a number of full scholarships which may also include Masters programmes within the funding package.
