New Funding and Bursaries for Masters students


The department is pleased to announce a new series of bursaries and funding for Taught Masters students.

Thanks for the generosity of a former alumnus, the department is able to offer one bursary of up to £1,500 for students who have a confirmed place on the MSc in Environmental Analysis of Terrestrial Systems.

Following the success of the Geoarchaeology: Landscape to Laboratory and Back conference held in Sheffield in April 2009, up to four bursaries of £1,000 to £1,500 are now available for the MSc in Geoarchaeology. All those with a confirmed place on the course by 1 June 2010 will be considered for the bursary.

This new funding is in addition to the existing addition to the existing two, £2,000, dedicated Masters-level University Bursaries available to University of Sheffield graduates via the Alumni Office, a number of £1,000 departmental bursaries, dedicated bursaries offering reduced-fee places for the MSc in Social & Spatial Inequalities and four bursaries for the MSc in Arid Land Studies, each worth €12,000, funded by the EU-US Atlantis Programme.
